    We Wai Kai (Cape Mudge) First Nation Chief Ralph Dick has been found in breach of his

    fiduciary duty after accepting a $12,000 share option from a business venture controlled by the band, an external investiga-tion has found.

    The investigation, by Ratcliff

    & Company LLP of North Van-couver, was requested by We Wai Kai Council after a review of computer files of former band accountant Maurice Magowan.

    The report was delivered anon-

    ymously to the Mirror this week. We Wai Kai Administrator

    Brian Kelly said council is plan-ning to call a general membership meeting to share the findings of the report, but had not done so

    yet as many members includ-ing some councillors are com-mercial fishermen and are away for the final days of the season.

    In what Conservative party campaign man-agers see as a troubling trend, campaign posters for their federal election candidates in mid- and north Island ridings have been defaced, destroyed or taken, while those of their federal election counterparts remain untouched.

    I put up one of the signs at my house and they dumped it in Wood Creek, said Jamie Wood of Campbell River, who organized a sign-placing drive for North Island-Powell River candidate Laura Smith along the Old Island Highway through Area D south of town. I found out later it was happening in Nanaimo and all the way up the highway to Camp-bell River. Pretty well consistently the Conser-vatives signs are being slaughtered the whole way.

    A volunteer answering the phones at the Nanimo headquarters of Conser-vative candidate Mark MacDonald confirmed Woods claim.

    Weve definitely had a large amount of signs defaced, spray-painted with profanities, bro-ken or taken, she said. Were finding crews are just burning up their time repairing, replacing and picking up signs that have been damaged.

    Nobody has been caught in the act, which can carry criminal penal-ties ranging from vandal-ism to mischief to theft. And members of the Conservative campaigns have offered varying the-ories as to who might be behind it.

    But they are agreed on one point.

    The NDP and Green signs right next to ours at the intersections arent being touched, said Glen McPherson, MacDonalds Nanaimo campaign man-ager. Its hard to believe its weather-related. Or that its a coincidence.

    In Campbell River, Wood allowed that one or two of the smaller

    signs might have blown over in last weekends storm. But he said the damage began showing up almost immediately after Smiths signs began going up a week earlier. Particularly targeted are the larger, heavier signs, which have been cut out of their sturdy two-by-four frames.

    In some cases they took a knife and slashed them off, said Wood. We secure those on there with screws and washers; theyre not blowing away.

    At the corner of South Island Highway and Jubi-lee Parkway, a support stands at the side of the road, with the screws still holding a strip of a Smith sign that was cut away. Just around the corner at the same intersection, a sign touting Liberal can-didate Peter Schwarzhoff stands untouched. Wood believes dirt-bikers who commonly ride near the beach may have caused some of the trouble. He

    said several of the smaller signs that were flattened at the side of the road bore a single tread mark running over them.

    Its criminal mischief and criminal theft if you take them and knock them down, he said. If its kids, they dont want to mess up the rest of their life by getting a record for something like this.

    Section 325 of the Can-ada Elections Act states that, No person shall prevent or impair the transmission to the pub-lic of an election adver-tising message without

    the consent of a person with authority to autho-rize its transmission.

    McPherson promised there would be no retali-ation against the other candidates signs, at least not from any volunteers

    working from MacDon-alds office.

    Ive put out the word to all the volunteers in our campaign, Please dont touch anyones signs, he said. And they wouldnt, because theyre nice people.

    Wood said hes seen this sort of activity in the past, and has noted that it usually flares up early in the campaign before set-tling down as the election draws closer. The federal election is scheduled for Oct. 19.

    Hopefully nobodys gonna take down the other guys signs, he said. Or any more of ours.
