Premier Gordon Campbell made the following statement on the passing of former judge and B.C. Conflict of Interest Commissioner H.A.D. (Bert) Oliver:
"On behalf of all British Columbians, I want to express my condolences to Bert Oliver's family and friends.
"In a career that was dedicated to serving the public, Bert was British Columbia's Conflict of Interest Commissioner for over ten years, from 1997 to 2007. He was a decorated Second World War veteran, a former Consul to Liberia and a B.C. Superior Court Justice.
"We are fortunate that Bert shared his talents with the people of B.C. for many years in various capacities - lawyer, judge, Officer of the Legislature and ethics advisor to the Vancouver Police.
"Bert's participation in our provincial life will be sorely missed, and his contributions to British Columbia always remembered."
