Ethnic outreach email implicates former minister John Yap, says NDP

Another leaked email is calling into question the B.C. Liberal government's claims on the ethnic outreach scandal.

In the past the government has claimed the plan developed by party staffers to use taxpayer resources to help gain ethnic votes for the B.C. Liberal Party was never put in place.

But as CBC's Stephen Smart reports, the NDP says a newly uncovered email sent from former multiculturalism minister John Yap to his communications director proves tax dollars were used to put together the lists for the good of the Liberal Party.
