f (#4, 2016) B.C. AT­TOR­NEY GEN­ERAL

Let­ter of the Law As theNDP’s hous­ing critic, David Eby was a force to be reck­oned with. Thanks to his hound­ing, the Lib­er­als im­ple­mented the for­eign­buyer tax, and they prac­ti­cally sur­ren­dered the Point Grey rid­ing to Eby dur­ing the May elec­tion. Now that he is B.C.’s at­tor­ney gen­eral, Eby’s po­ten­tial for power istremen­dous, but we may have to wait to judge his e¢ec­tive­ness. He took his time draft­ing leg­is­la­tion to ban cor­po­rate and union po­lit­i­cal do­na­tions, say­ing he wanted it to be “bulletproof.”
