"Marginalization continued"

Writing in The Tyee, Bob Mackin makes an incisive point about recent work of remittance man Wally Oppal, the loyal BC Liberal go-between when $6-million cash from taxpayers topped up Basi/Virk prosecutor Berardino's offer of slap-on-the-wrist sentences in return for an end to the BC Rail trial.

After Year of Highs and Lows, Five Questions for 2013, Bob Mackin, The Tyee
[Wally Oppal's] report was dated Nov. 19, but the release was held off until the Monday of the final business week of the calendar year, a week before Christmas. Even in the Oppal Commission's final major act, the marginalization continued. Reporters and victims' families were given just an hour in a lockup to review the phone book-thick, nearly 1,500-page report before Oppal's news conference.

By comparison, when the Stanley Cup riot report was released in 2011, there was a 90-minute lockup to review just 386 pages.
