Laura Miller is back as Executive Director with the BC Liberal Party.
In mid-December, she stepped down, after being charged criminally in connection to Ontario’s gas plants scandal.
At that time, she vowed to fight the allegations against her and said her name would eventually be cleared.
She’s one of two former aides to Dalton McGuinty charged for their alleged role in the deletion of emails related to the controversial cancellation of two gas plants.
The charges include breach of trust.
Miller says Ontario provincial police were biased against her.
The party says after giving it a serious, thorough look she is being welcomed back as Executive Director.
BC Premier Christy Clark has called Miller a person of integrity, and says everyone has the right to be innocent until proven guilty.
But NDP Leader John Horgan says he has an issue with the rehire.
“The BC Liberal Party is a private club. If they want the head of their operation to be under charges for breach of trust and mischief in another jurisdiction, that’s their business.”
Horgan says that’s just the way the BC Liberals roll, pointing to a party organizer facing election act charges in connection to the ethnic outreach scandal still being employed by them.
