Better background check was needed

Black Press column sounded like a paid ad for B.C. Liberals

Re: Poor choice for B.C. pre-election piece (Letters, May 17)

I found John Palmer’s letter interesting. I, too, thought that the pre-election article by Gwyn Morgan (Think hard about B.C.’s future before voting May 14; Opinion, May 10)  sounded like a Liberal advertisement.

Now we learn more about the elusive Mr. Morgan. He is on the board of the Fraser Institute, but more importantly he recently retired as board chairman of SNC Lavelin, which is presently involved in court proceedings.

Black Press rightfully highlighted Mr. Palmer’s letter, which told us of this behaviour, but it would have been better if Black Press had done proper background checks on Mr. Morgan prior to the election, not after.
