Attorney General unsure of crime bill costs
By Sean Leslie, CKNW
Attorney-General Shirley Bond says she still doesn't know how much Ottawa's omnibus crime bill cost the province.
Bond discussed the bill with other provincial justice ministers last week.
She says they expressed concern about the financial impacts, but in general they support the changes.
"So in fact we are partners in this, we expressed our views, but you know what? We're gonna work to be constructive with our federal counterparts, we're not gonna behave like the NDP did when they were in government, refusing to participate in a constructive way, that continues under Adrian Dix and the NDP."
But opposition critic Kathy Corrigan says it's ridiculous the province doesn't have a cost estimate, and accuses the liberals of being "wimpy" in their dealings with Ottawa.
