BC MLAs’ Public Disclosures Aren’t Accessible Online – So, We’ve Posted Them

By Andrew MacLeod Yesterday |
As a public service, The Tyee is posting the public disclosure statements the 85 members of British Columbia’s legislative assembly made for 2016.

Arrived at in consultation with conflict of interest commissioner Paul Fraser, the annual statements for each MLA and their families include assets, liabilities and sources of income, though they do not include dollar values. They also list any gifts an MLA may have received with a value greater than $250. Despite it being 2017, however, the statements are not routinely available online.Instead, they can be had by request through the office of the clerk of the legislative assembly, something few British Columbians are likely to know. Even fewer are likely to bother. (more)
