Here is a new development for those following the media reports about MLA Eric Foster and the renovations of his Vernon-Monashee constituency office. It turns out that the lot next door to Foster’s constituency office is also owned by the same company.
The property in question is a parking lot at 3211 31 Ave in Vernon. A document from the Kamloops Land Title Office shows that it was purchased by Kalview Park Enterprises Ltd for $108,001.91. Like the purchase of Eric Foster’s constituency office at 3209 31 Ave, this lot was bought days before the May 12, 2009 general election in British Columbia.
It is unclear whether the Conflict of Interest Commissioner was aware of this additional property when reviewing the details of the renovations of Foster’s constituency office. Nor is it clear whether this additional property was part of the audit conducted by Auditor General John Doyle.
Kalview Park Enterprises was created through an amalgamation of two numbered companies on March 1, 2009.
