TransLink should report supplier payments, says political watchdog

Business in Vancouver investigation reveals inventory of contractors and suppliers that includes brother of former TransLink boss

A company owned by the brother of Ian Jarvis was paid more than the ex-TransLink CEO was in 2014, but you wonai??i??t find that in TransLinkai??i??s list of suppliers obtained by Business in Vancouver.

The Financial Information Act Return shows TransLink paid Ian Jarvis $483,625 in 2014. The report does not show the $676,000 in payments to Trevor Jarvis Contracting Ltd. from the subsidiary that operates SkyTrain.

TransLink media adviser Chris Bryan said thatai??i??s because subsidiaries like BC Rapid Transit Corp. (BCRTC) are not subject to the act, which requires public organizations to annually list suppliers of goods and services worth $25,000 and up.

Bryan said Trevor Jarvis Contracting performs landscaping and maintenance at 90 sites, including SkyTrain stations, transit centres, bus loops, park and rides, rectifier stations and HandyDart locations. It is also contracted for snow and ice removal.
