Basi-Virk key Crown witness Erik Bornmann decision on becoming lawyer in Ontario reserved by Law Society

Erik Bornmann
The Law Society of Upper Canada has today reserved its decision on whether to allow Eric Bornmann - the key Crown witness in the Basi-Virk/BC Legislature Raid case - to become a lawyer in Ontario.

Bornmann, the former BC lobbyist who admitted paying money and other benefits in exchange for confidential government information from former BC Liberal  Ministerial Aides David Basi and Bob Virk on the sale of BC Rail in 2003, applied to be admitted to the bar several years ago after graduating with a law degree from the University of BC.

No timeline for a decision on Bornmann's application has been given by the Society.

The Bornmann application and another to New York State to practice law there were both broken by me in 24 hours newspaper.

Shame that no one in the media covered this event. Erik Bornmann should not be allowed to practice law.

If that clown gets to be a lawyer, it would show just how stupid the Law Society could be. Lawyers are at about the bottom of a list of who people respect. Giving bribes isn't supposed to happen.
