That is what the Premier is essentially saying to the BC Liberals Executive Director who has returned to the post after resigning to face charges in Ontario.
Christy Clark says Laura Miller has not been found guilty of anything and a court case, in which she says Miller is making a spirited defence, is ongoing.
Clark says the party talked it over and decided to bring her back as Executive Director, something Clark supports.
“Well I think the BC Liberal party made the decision because they believed she should be presumed innocent until proven otherwise and there view probably would be she had a right to employment just like most other people do when we consider them to be innocent.”
Miller has issued a statement to her supporters upon her return to BC Liberals headquarters today.
“I truly appreciate the opportunity to continue making a living doing what I’m passionate about, and I’m honoured to have the unanimous support of the Executive Board and so many other British Columbians who have backed me while I stepped aside to organize a strong legal defense in Ontario. It hasn’t always been easy, but because of this support, I’m now in a place to return to work and get busy on leading our strong and determined team as we build our 2017 campaign.”
Miller acknowledges BC Liberal Party President Sharon White for the invitation back to her position as executive director, for which she says she is “incredibly thankful.”
Miller is facing several charges in Ontario over the gas plant scandal in her role with the then Dalton McGuinty government.
She resigned in December after being charged with mischief, breach of trust, and misuse of a computer system to commit mischief.
