A special prosecutor assigned to look into the BC Liberals’ ethnic outreach scandal won’t deliver his report on Wednesday, as expected.
Also known as the “quick wins” scandal, officials were found to have mixed public and party business in an attempt to reach out to ethnic voters.
As a result, government communications official Brian Bonney resigned and was subsequently charged with Elections Act offences, as was BC Liberal Party staffer Mark Robertson.
Special prosecutor David Butcher has been assigned to look into the affair, and was expecting to have a report by September’s end.
But now, the Criminal Justice Branch says he has asked for more time.
A new timeline has not been set.
