Premier vows to implement all recommendations in Dyble report

Premier Christy Clark is vowing to implement all of the recommendations in John Dyble’s report on the ethnic outreach scandal, including possible disciplinary action.

In fact, a third person has now resigned in the wake of the report, Mike Lee, the former executive assistant to John Yap, has resigned without severance.

Lee was cited in the report for breaching the code of conduct in his work helping liaison workers apply for government contracts.

And Clark says Yap himself will not return to cabinet.

“As well as leader, I’ve instructed my party to reimburse the government for any costs as deemed necessary by the comptroller general as required by the financial administration act.  Further, I’ve spoken with MLA John Yap who at the outset of this review did the right thing and he stepped aside from his cabinet post. He agrees it is appropriate for him not to return to cabinet at this time.  He will continue to serve his constituents, and our caucus.”

Clark says the Liberal party has already written a cheque for 70-thousand dollar to reimburse the government for resources that were misused, including part of the salary of former communications manager Brian Bonney.
