“E” Division - Press Release:

On December 29, 2003, E Division of the RCMP issued a press release concerning the raid on the Legislature the previous day.

One paragraph from the release reads:

(Sgt. John).."Ward said that in the course of a recent 20-month organized crime / drug investigation by the RCMP and Victoria police, information on various matters not directly related to the specific case was discovered. That new information, combined with information directly linked to the organized crime / drug investigation, resulted in police securing warrants to search offices of non-elected staff members at the BC Legislature as well as the home offices of two individuals living on the Lower Mainland and the offices of a private company doing business in Victoria and Vancouver."

The rest of this release can be found here.

BC Mary recommended this article by Bill Tieleman published May 10, 2005.
Spiderman in a Web of Intrigue, in the Tyee, and Vive le Canada, for three places to my knowledge.
"Erik Bornman’s nickname is Spiderman but the former top Paul Martin aide is now stuck in a sticky web of intrigue that includes the tainted $1 billion BC Rail privatization deal, drug trafficking, influence peddling and the impending high-profile trial of accused ex-BC Liberal ministerial aides David Basi and Bob Virk.

How did Bornman, a well-connected BC and federal Liberal operative, become the crown’s key witness against his former friends Basi and Virk in the trial arising from the dramatic police raid on the BC Legislature in December 2003?"

Some background on one of the main characters outside of the cousins.
