A true account that reads like a vel, of provincial government abuse of power leading to bankruptcies, and foreclosures for citizens caught in the web of negligence, deceit and denial of due process.
Christine Rainey was borne in Montreal, Quebec in 1931, a child of the Great Depression, who's Scottish born parents returned to Dundee, Scotland in 1933 where she was educated; growing up in a working class family. In 1948, following the end of the Second World War, the family returned to Montreal where she went to work for Bell telephone. She was married in 1953 and migrated to California in 1956, returning to Canada in 1964. There are three surviving children of the marriage which ended in divorce in 1975, she remarried 1977 and lives happily with her second husband in Victoria, B.C. Her reason for writing this book is twofold. First to expose the series of bizarre events set in motion by the arrogant and negligent actions of the Provincial Government of B.C. causing unjustified loss and trauma that should never have happened, and second, that they would stand up to and speak out against injustice in whatever form it mat rear its ugly head. It is also her earnest hope that the book would prove to be an educational tool of sorts, as to what up and coming lawyers and politicians should not do. That they should always remember who it is that pays the cost, and when mistakes are made, do the honourable thing by owning up to the fact, instead of, as has been the modus operandi of the past, applying band-aids on top of band-aids as panic solutions, only to find that eventually they drop off. As the saying goes, the truth will out!
