Nearly seven years after the RCMP raided the BC Legislature in their investigation of the one billion dollar sale of BC Rail, the corruption trial of three former BC government aides ended when Dave Basi and Bobby Virk entered surprise guilty pleas October 18th to four counts linked to breach of trust and accepting rewards or benefits. BC Premier Gordon Campbell said the two former government aides acted alone when they interfered in the sale of BC Rail. Basi and Virk received two years of house arrest. Campbell said he had no sympathy for either one. (Aneal Basi was accused of money laundering but charges against him were dropped.)
