The NDP sure likes those constituency offices as a means to steal taxpayers' money for political, partisan purposes.

I still ask, why didn't the NDP pay the stolen $460,000 back to taxpayers as a showing of good faith once they were caught?


B.C. NDP used taxpayer funds for party activities, leaked document says

UPDATED MARCH 26, 2017


British Columbia's New Democrats used almost $460,000 of publicly funded constituency money to conduct party activities and pay off caucus expenses during a five-year period that ended Dec. 31, 2011, says a leaked document.

The document is a briefing note prepared for the government's all-party Legislative Management Committee, and describes the operations of the NDP Members Constituency Office Centralized Fund.

The briefing note is connected to leaked portions of a draft report from Auditor-General John Doyle that stated that by March 2009, the NDP amassed $460,000 from monthly constituency office payments and most of the money was used to fund partisan activities.

The briefing note details the concerns of the Auditor-General about how the fund was managed and documented and whether the fund should be permitted to carry a surplus at the end of each year.

"From 2006 up to December 31, 2011, the fund has made total expenditures of $459,790 and currently has an unexpended balance of $145,733," said the briefing note.

The note also stated the majority of the fund was used to pay Gabriel Yiu, a two-time former NDP candidate who provides multicultural outreach services for the NDP caucus.

The NDP never paid back that stolen money. They never paid back the $1 million they stole during Bingogate, either. They are thieves, plain and simple, and seem to think they're above reproach for their illegal activities.
