Desibuzzbc-Banner-Metrics-FinalNDP Says $200,000 Christy Clark Government Grant To B.C. Liberal Insiders Johal And Singh Raises Serious Questions!

ravi-kahlonNDP sent out a press release on Monday, that had several errors including calling Jagmohan Singh Rajmohan Singh (looks like the army of South Asian media cronies they employ can’t even get that fact right), that emphasized that the grant is questionable and will be closely examined by the government. The press release stated: “While the B.C. Liberal government claimed before the election they had no money to help the province’s most vulnerable people, they magically found $200,000 to give to two B.C. Liberal insiders for an organization they registered only a few days earlier.” Ravi Kahlon, NDP MLA for Delta North, said the more he has looked into the grant, the more extraordinary it looks, and the more serious questions are raised. “There are some very questionable things when it comes to this B.C. Liberal government grant to their friends,” said Kahlon. “The grant came from a contingency fund just a month before the 2017 election to known B.C. Liberal insiders. They registered an organization on March 1, and by March 17, just 16 days later, they received a $200,000 grant from the B.C. Liberal government. I’ve never heard of a case where an organization gets a massive government grant 16 days after existence.”

VICTORIA – The John Horgan NDP Government is going hard after BC Liberals Satnam Johal and Jagmohan Singh over them getting a last minute $200,000 pre-election grant courtesy of their friends Christy Clark and Peter Fassbender.

NDP sent out a press release on Monday that had several errors including calling Jagmohan Singh Rajmohan Singh (looks like the army of South Asian media cronies they employ can’t even get that fact right) that emphasized that the grant is questionable and will be closely looked at.

The press release stated: “While the B.C. Liberal government claimed before the election they had no money to help the province’s most vulnerable people, they magically found $200,000 to give to two B.C. Liberal insiders for an organization they registered only a few days earlier.”

“There are some very questionable things when it comes to this B.C. Liberal government grant to their friends,” said Kahlon. “The grant came from a contingency fund just a month before the 2017 election to known B.C. Liberal insiders. They registered an organization on March 1, and by March 17, just 16 days later, they received a $200,000 grant from the B.C. Liberal government.

“I’ve never heard of a case where an organization gets a massive government grant 16 days after existence.”

Kahlon added, “I’ve also never heard of an instance where the B.C. Liberal government gave out a $200,000 grant just before an election and didn’t hold an event to draw attention to it. I haven’t even been able to find a press release. That alone is extraordinary.”

Christy Clark is finished-Bill-Tielman5The press release said that radio stations in Metro Vancouver (they mean Punjabi radio stations in Surrey) had documented ongoing rifts developing between B.C. Liberal insider Satnam Johal and the B.C. Liberal leadership as the election approached, primarily due to reports that Johal was kept out of the nomination process in at least one constituency. This is only partly true as LINK editor R. Paul Dhillon broke the story on this so-called rift between Johal and Christy Clark cronies. 

Johal and his close colleague Jagmohan Singh (NDP release called him Rajmohan Singh) formed New Horizons Village Society on March 1, 2017. The Treasury Board approved a $200,000 grant for them 16 days later, to be funded from contingencies.

“So far, I haven’t been able to find much in the way of a business case or paper trail leading up to the grant,” said Kahlon. “I’ve seen a letter to Rich Coleman just before they formed the society, officially requesting the money. Mr. Coleman must have advanced the request at that point, despite the organization not even officially existing yet.”

Kahlon noted that even today (Monday), the website for the organization only has a phone number on it and “Site and Development Coming Soon” placeholder text.

“It’s like an empty shell of an organization. This grant doesn’t pass the smell test, and I plan to look into it more,” said Kahlon.
