  • BC man banned from investment market

A Vancouver man convicted of fraud has been permanently banned from B-C's investment market.

The B-C Securities Commission says a panel has concluded that Jeffrey Shaughnessy's misconduct was "extremely serious," and the man posed "a significant ongoing risk" to the public and the capital markets had the ban not been put in place.

The B-C-S-C says Shaughnessy has pleaded guilty in provincial court after convincing two couples to invest a total of 29-thousand-dollars in a speaking event.

The commission says Shaughnessy then spent the money on personal expenses, including at a casino, and has been sentenced to a three-month conditional sentence as a result

Premier David Eby says his government will provide almost $80 million to help upgrade Abbotsford's Barrowtown Pump Station, which was nearly overwhelmed in 2021 by atmospheric rivers that set off catastrophic flooding in the Sumas Prairie.  The area is a key bread basket for B.C., and Eby says the flooding on the Sumas Prairie could have been much worse had the pump station failed.
