Westside interchange questions unanswered

To the editor:

While we are pumping millions of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere waiting to navigate our way through the new Westside Interchange, we have ample time to entertain a few basic questions:

Why is the Ledcor contract to build this interchange with the Westbank First Nations (WFN) and not the B.C. government?

The WFN supplied the land the interchange is sitting on, but who owns it, the B.C. government, or the WFN?

Does the B.C. government have title or is the interchange sitting on a 99-year lease?

And who did the government give $41 million as payment for the interchange?

The Ledcor contract was $12.9 million—who received the rest, and for what?

Gordon Campbell could answer all those questions, but where is he?
