Former B.C. Liberal leader Gordon Wilson was back in the news this week when he endorsed Christy Clark for premier (see video above).
The video doesn't include mention of Wilson's recent financial challenges.
Court documents reveal that a home owned by the former Powell River–Sunshine Coast MLA and his wife, former B.C. Liberal MLA Judi Tyabji, was the subject of foreclosure proceedings in January 2012.
According to an Order Nisi (conditional order) granted to Serin Investments Ltd. by B.C. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Saunders, the couple owed $157,465.72 plus the assessed costs of the hearing.
In February 2013, Tyabji and Wilson signed a consent order agreeing to a judgment of $35,853.33 to Hakemi Law Corporation.
Wilson is also a former NDP cabinet minister and was once leader of the Progressive Democratic Alliance.
