Gordon Campbell, British Columbia Premier, has told us he is innocent of any corruption regarding his owning shares in Alcan Corporation and giving them a sweetheart deal to produce and sell power to BC Hydro at a huge premium price. Even though their original contract only allowed them to produce enough power to make aluminum. Even though the BC Utilities Commission said Alcan producing hydro power was NOT a good deal for British Columbians. Even though some municipalities tried to block the privatization of our rivers and Campbell brought in Bill 30 to stop ALL protests about private power in BC. He said he didn't KNOW that he owned Alcan stock in his portfolio. We believe him, right? Right?

We still believe that Gordon knew nothing of Alcan stocks he owned though, right?
