GlobalTV presses Gregor Robertson on apparent political interference in Pandora inquest (video)
It’s heartening to see some media outlets here in Vancouver like GlobalTV and CKNW News seeking to make Gregor Robertson and his handpicked City Manager accountable for their part in influencing the choice of date for the Pandora Street fire coroner’s inquiry. The reports beginning Sunday night by NW’s Charmaine de Silva and then by GlobalTV’s John Daly the past two evenings are a rare instance indeed of when we see Hizzoner outside his comfort zone.
Gregor as we know is much better at ribbon cuttings, or demonstrating an electric car where he can simply put it in drive and avoid reporter’s questions.
While we here at CityCaucus.com are short-staffed during Spring Break we thought we’d share both of Daly’s excellent reports today.
Robertson: "the City chose to advise the coroner" to delay the inquest – see Daly video #2
We’ll have some more reports here shortly on CityCaucus.com based upon recent FOIs, and other interesting political news.
UPDATE: My 24 Hours column is now online – "We need answers from Mayor Gregor."
