About Corruption BC

Corruption BC was founded by Johnny Zakharia. The mission of Corruption BC is to investigate and expose corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud, and other misconduct in both public and private institutions in order to achieve a more ethical and transparent society. We will accomplish this by: Launching specific journalistic investigations and widely publicize the results. Conducting training workshops to teach others how to become modern-day muckrakers.

Creating a method for the public to alert journalists and citizen journalists of issues and institutions that need to be investigated. Corruption BC does not advocate specific resolutions to the issues that are raised through its investigations, nor do we encourage others to do so. Our goal is to inform the public of wrongdoing and allow the public to make judgments on the issues.

A person who intentionally seeks out and publishes the misdeeds, such as criminal acts or corruption, of a public individual for profit or gain. Sometimes this informationis linked to powerful businessmen. Muckraker is often applied specifically to journalists.
