Pimm's Fairy Tales
Ag-minister wants control of independent ALC panel
Released by Dermod Travis, IntegrityBC
remier Christy Clark has no choice but to ask for and accept B.C. Agriculture Minister Pat Pimm's resignation following a news report that the Minister intervened in a file before the Agricultural Land Commission.
On Saturday, the Globe and Mail reported that Pimm and Fort St. John Mayor
Lori Ackerman made representations in an application by a Fort St. John
resident to withdraw land from the Agricultural Land Reserve.
The Commission wrote that the representations “could create the impression
for both the Commission and the public that these officials were attempting
to politically influence the Commission.”
