On July 7, 2016, we received an email addressed to BC’s Finance Minister – the Hon. Michael De jong. The email was written by the former Director (Peter Harris) of U-Go Brands – a company that has had issues with the BCSC for the past 2-3 years.
Finance Minister Michael De jong
It is very apparent that Mr. Harris just wants to have a conversation with BCSC Chair Brenda Leong to discuss the issues surrounding his treatment from the Staff at the BCSC. He has sent dozens of emails, has tried to call her, has filed formal charges with the RCMP, and has tried to get politicians (the Hon. Christy Clark, Mr. De jong, and even Prime Minister Justin Trudeau) to hear his voice. But to no avail!
Her ignoring him has led to frustration which has seemed to boil over with his July 7 email to BC Finance Minister.
After reading Mr. Harris’s scathing email, we decided to write an email to Brenda Leong – after all, it appears all the issues people are currently having with the BCSC revolve around her decision to not respond to people that are looking for answers from her regarding the actions of her Staff. While Mr. Harris emails are of a different tone and demeanor than ours, the message is still the same – WE ALL JUST WANT ANSWERS! We feel our emails have been polite, candid, and to the point but to date, she has failed miserably to do this portion of her job.
Mr. Harris’s email is found here – along with my email to the same parties that Mr. Harris CC’d his email to:
