Get and Share the BC Liberals’ Falsehoods, Scandals and Boondoggles Compendium

Our 117-item list, an election must read, now available as a PDF.

Robyn Smith is editor in chief of The Tyee.

The BC Liberal list is part of The Tyee’s reader-funded B.C. 2017 election coverage. To learn more about becoming a Tyee Builder, go here.

The Tyee’s 117-item list of BC Liberal falsehoods, scandals and boondoggles is now available as a downloadable PDF.

Readers were requesting it, so we asked the good folks at Hypsypops Design Co. to help us lay out the list in a readable, shareable, printable way.

You can get it here.

The list, drafted by Tyee founding editor David Beers, long-time provincial political reporter Tom Barrett, and others catalogues over 15 years of “public messes” wrought by successive BC Liberal governments under Gordon Campbell and Christy Clark.

We released the list in two parts, and followed it up with a third and final list that included contributions from readers across British Columbia. The Tyee received over 100 ideas for additions from readers, and we included those that fit our criteria.

Already, the three lists have been shared over 10,000 times.

This project wouldn’t have been possible without the financial support of Tyee readers who supported our 2017 B.C. election fundraiser drive. Kudos, readers!

If you like the list, and independent reporting that holds the powerful to account, consider contributing to our BC in the Balance Reporting project. You can do that here.

You can find all of The Tyee’s election coverage as it is published here, or sign up for our daily or weekly newsletters here.  [Tyee]
