Quoted from the article:
The B.C. Liberals should not have sent operatives to secretly record video of a small group discussing housing with NDP MLA David Eby. And they should certainly not be making taxpayers foot the bill for such a partisan and dubious activity.
Eby revealed the secret surveillance Monday in the legislature. The Richmond NDP riding association had invited young people to a Saturday afternoon housing and education forum at a local community centre. About a dozen people — some minors — attended.
The Liberals sent a taxpayer-paid caucus researcher to make a video recording of the meeting, where Eby spoke. She did not identify herself nor reveal she was surreptitiously recording the meeting.
