Copy of MEDIA FOI asking BCHMC audit of Portland Hotel Society – 2005 Why was that request denied?

 The audit was for Dec/01 – Jan/02, and flat-out denied to media by adjudicator  Celia Francis, Jan. 13/05.
A decade has passed and the directors have an amazing sense of what ‘public service’ and ‘non-profit’ are all about.   No surprise.
But the governments role in suppressing financial details,  greatly assisted Mark Townsend and his cohorts in their appalling sense of the right to spend the public’s hard-earned tax dollars, lavishing it on their owns pleasures.
No accountability was demanded for all these years.
I am grateful to the media …… again, for exposing what government prefers to obscure.
