Erica is a reporter for Moose FM and in Fort St. John, B.C. She grew up in Victoria, B.C. and received her Bachelor's Degree in Journalism from Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec.

This time its for allegedly violating federal conflict of interest rules, less than a year, after his official retirement from politics in 2010.

Ethics watchdog Mary Dawson says in 2011, he wrongfully contacted former Conservative colleagues about an impending multi-national energy deal, between Progress Energy, and the Malaysian oil giant Petronas.

The Dawson report says, Mr. Hill used his former position in cabinet, to help his wife and her employer—a public relations firm drafting a communications plan for the deal—gain access to federal cabinet ministers.
