Scope and content
Series contains files related to Waddell's role as a British Columbia MLA from 1996-2001. These records include both provincial and constituent topics, as well as conferences, events, and projects that Waddell contributed to, and subject files that reflect his multiple ministerial positions in environment, intergovernmental affairs, small business, tourism, and culture. Records include correspondence, reports, press clippings, research and agendas.
As Minister of Small Business, Tourism, and Culture, Waddell was heavily involved in the bid process for the 2010 Olympics. Olympic records focus mostly on the bid process, from applying for the Canadian bid to winning the 2010 Olympic bid. Some post-bidding materials are also included, such as Waddell's personal ephemera from attending the 2010 Winter Olympics. Committee strategies and planning documents, correspondence, research and reports, meetings and agendas are among the records, as well as press releases and press clippings about the Olympic bid.
As a Member of BC Legislature, Waddell chaired the inquiry into treaty negotiations and the Nisga'a Agreement-in-Principle. These records are located in the Select Standing Committee on Aboriginal Affairs series.
Waddell's international interests during this time, including following the development of the International Criminal Court, can be found in the International work series.
Immediate source of acquisition
Most of the files are arranged according to the organization of the creator. Waddell not only identified records belonging to his provincial career which make up this series, he also identified significant groupings of records within it. Subgroupings of records were indicated by labeled paper dividers or notes attached to bound groups of files. Groups of records identified by Waddell are indicated by a group title appearing before the file name of applicable files.
The Olympics group identified by Waddell were additionally arranged by the archivist. Most of these records were received in unnamed folders or loosely placed along side these files in a box. Based on the archivist's review of these unidentified groupings of records, the records were arranged according to stages of the Olympic bid process and name of the Olympic bid committee during the process.
