So why is a group with the near-identical title "Concerned Citizens of BC" apparently headquartered in the taxpayer-funded constituency office of BC Liberal Finance Minister and Surrey-Cloverdale MLA Kevin Falcon?

That would appear to be at least politically wrong, since constituency offices are required to be apolitical and Shephard's mission is anything but.
The former CEO of Finning and Canfor is an ardent NDP hardline opponent who claims that: "You know, we lived through socialism in BC for 10 years." See:
Search "Concerned Citizens for BC" on Google and you find this listing:
Concerned Citizens Of Bc
Address: 17700 No 10 Hwy #108, Surrey BC,
Sales: $1 - $500,000
Employees: Approximately: three employees work at this location
Here is The URL
Then Google search that same address and you get this:
MLA: Hon. Kevin Falcon
Minister of Finance and Deputy Premier
Elected: 2001, 2005, 2009
BRITISH COLUMBIA LIBERAL PARTY
Constituency: 108 – 17700 No. 10 Highway Surrey, BC
Phone: 604 576-3792 Fax: 604 576-3797
So the question for Falcon and Shephard is simple - please explain this apparent contradiction. Is this the same group or a very similarly named one?
And either way, why is it apparently headquartered in Falcon's constituency office? Concerned British Columbians want to know.
UPDATE - The Province newspaper's Cassidy Olivier made inquiries and published a story which a BC Liberal caucus spokesperson says the similar names are a "coincidence" and that the old Kevin Falcon "Total Recall" group has nothing to do with the constituency office.
