Editors note: We are publishing the above correspondence in the interests of fairness and journalistic integrity.
Mr. English continues to hold the opinion that Mr. Harney's conduct was highly unprofessional, that he overbilled for work done, that he did not carry out his original retainer and that he tried to bully Mr. English into approving a "draft" bill for $1.1 million.
The Editors also observe that when Mr. Harney sent Mr. English
the official bill it was for a whooping $536,000 including taxes, for a few weeks of work and that Master Keighly of the Supreme Court of British Columbia found the bill to be far too high and reduced that bill by 50 per cent to $256,000 including taxes.
Mr. Harney kept no time records.
