On October 11, 2005, Vancouver Sun reporter Frances Bula on the CKNW Mike Smyth show had a number of as Allen Garr says lip slips.

For starters she stated that the DERA Missing Funds occur ed 23 years ago. In actual fact, the DERA Missing funds happened in 1992 which I believe is 13 years ago.

Then Ms Bula went on to claim that Yes this money did go Missing at DERA but Jim Green was never implicated.

Again Frances Bula is way off her mark because the employees at DERA went on a Wildcat strike demanding the return of one Jim Green who disappeared when all hell broke loose over the Missing funds at DERA. In fact if anyone really wants the straight goods on this matter I'm sure the former President of CUPE 1004, Dave Long, who represented the DERA workers during their Wildcat Strike, would be happy to fill people in.

The Implication from the DERA employees was that there was more than two Employees involved in the $20,000 Missing Funds at DERA and they wanted to bring this to light.

So there is the spoken truth.

And not to worry Frances Bula, I can teach you the art of LypSyncing so these LipSlips don't occur too frequently.

Hi Folks!

The Vancouver Courier is running an online poll to see if people will be voting for me. If you care to vote please visit their website at www.vancourier.com

My lawyer has spoken to the lawyer for Mr Green and Ms Deal. I finally know what these American born politicos are asking. They requested that I take down the blogs they mistakenly believed implied that they were engaging in an adulterous affair.

This is not the essence of my blog, however, I have taken down the blogs so as not to cause them any further distress. I will keep my readership informed as to how this proceeds.

STATEMENT from JAMIE LEE HAMILTONI want to be very very Clear here. I have Never and will Never talk about people in the vein that Mr Green and Ms Deal are suggesting.

I write in a Flamboyant way, I Speak in a Flamboyant way and in fact, Media continuously refer to me as a Flamboyant Individual. Again, let me be very clear. What I was getting at in the blog entry which has been called into question, is that Unions traditionally have supplied non-reporting municipal campaign staff. This Unreporting in a municipal campaign in my political opinion, is a disservice to average Vancouver Voters. This I think is a serious concern and is fair comment. As is Big Business donations. Obviously Mr Green and Ms Deal will benefit from Employees being Seconded from Unions to work on their campaigns.

THIS is WHY WE NEED CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM at the MUNICIPAL level and this will be a central plank in my own platform.

Ms Deal and Mr Green obviously think I was meaning something totally different and I do apologize for the distress this may have caused them.

In regard to the information on MISSING FUNDS at DERA. It is my understanding that Councillor Tim Stevenson released a document which acknowledges that $20,000 went MISSING from DERA in 1992. While the issue of the Missing Funds may not be part of the Civic campaign, nevertheless, this matter still needs a proper investigation.

It is time a forensic accounting review of the financial records from those days at DERA be conducted and I am certain this request will receive the full cooperation of DERA.

I believe Councillor Jim Green is duty bound to provide answers to the public on this matter since it goes to the heart of Public Trust. A number of questions remain. Namely they are:
1) Were the Missing Funds recovered in Full?
2) Why did so much money disappear so easily?

IN REGARD to DOCUMENTS in my POSSESSION--Yesterday upon the return of my legal counsel from Montreal, I had a two hour meeting at which time I turned over the Information I had regarding the Missing Funds at DERA. Mr Don Morrison will ensure they are dealt with in the most appropriate way.
