Biographical history

The Commission of Inquiry into the Saskatchewan Transportation Company (STC) was ordered by Gary Lane, Minister of Saskatchewan Justice, on March 20, 1990 pursuant to the Public Inquiries Act and Order-in-Council 267/90. The Honorable Russell L. Brownridge, former Justice of the Saskatchewan Court of Queen's Bench and Court of Appeal, was appointed Commissioner on March 20, 1990. Gary Semenchuck was named Inquiry counsel.

The original mandate of the STC Inquiry was to inquire into and report on allegations that officers of STC obtained money improperly in connection with the purchase of motor coaches by STC from Eagle Bus Manufacturing Inc; to examine allegations that money obtained from the purchase of motor coaches by STC from Eagle was to be used for political purposes in Canada; to examine purchasing practices at STC, particularly with Eagle; and to examine accounting methods used by STC, with emphasis on transactions with Eagle.

On July 20, 1990, the Inquiry's mandate was expanded to include an examination of management systems and procedures at STC with particular reference to major expenditures for construction or renovation of facilities, expenses incurred by senior management and the use of corporate credit cards by senior management.

Public hearings were scheduled to begin on September 10, 1990 in Regina, Saskatchewan but were adjourned when lawyers for former STC president Donald Castle and STC vice-president Darrell Lowry launched a court action challenging the jurisdiction of the Inquiry in August. On September 15, 1990, Court of Queen's Bench Justice William Matheson quashed the Inquiry, declaring it unconstitutional.

Although Justice Minister Lane said the Province would likely appeal the decision, an appeal was not filed and the STC Inquiry never resumed activity.
