Following are sections of the British Columbia Crown Council Act pertaining to the Special Prosecutor. With the recent events in the BC Court of Appeal and the Special Prosecutor in the Legislature Raids/BC Rail Fiasco it may help some in seeing what can be done if this trial is dropped.
Given the fact that nothing can be witheld after the trial ends I don't see how the government would have any choice but to further delay this trial in any way possible until after the next election. If they have to open the books so to speak they just may lose the election. Hell, they could wind up being sued. That would be a Civil Court matter and I'm fairly sure that they can't hide behind priviledge there.
Directions from Attorney General on specific prosecutions
5 If the Attorney General or Deputy Attorney General gives the ADAG a direction with respect to the approval or conduct of any specific prosecution or appeal, that direction must be:
(a) given in writing to the ADAG, and
(b) published in the Gazette.
Policy directive from Attorney General
6 (1) If the Attorney General or Deputy Attorney General wishes to issue a directive respecting the Criminal Justice Branch policy on the approval or conduct of prosecutions, that directive must be given in writing to the ADAG and, in the discretion of the ADAG, may be published in the Gazette.
(2) If the Attorney General or Deputy Attorney General wishes to issue a directive respecting the administration of the Branch, that directive must, if requested by the ADAG, be given in writing and may, in the discretion of the ADAG, be published in the Gazette.
7 (1) If the ADAG considers it is in the public interest, he or she may appoint a lawyer, who is not employed in the Ministry of Attorney General, as a special prosecutor.
(2) A special prosecutor must carry out his or her mandate, as set out in writing by the ADAG, and in particular must:
(a) examine all relevant information and documents and report to the ADAG with respect to the approval and conduct of any specific prosecution, and
(b) carry out any other responsibilities respecting the initiation and conduct of a specific prosecution.
(3) If the ADAG appoints a special prosecutor, the ADAG must advise the Deputy Attorney General :
(a) that a special prosecutor has been appointed, and
(b) the name of the special prosecutor.
(4) If, after a special prosecutor receives the mandate under subsection (2), the Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General or ADAG gives a direction to a special prosecutor in respect of any matter within the mandate of the special prosecutor, that direction must be given in writing and be published in the Gazette.
(5) Subject to the mandate given to the special prosecutor by the ADAG or to a directive referred to in subsection (4), the decision of a special prosecutor with respect to any matter within his or her mandate is final, but a decision not to approve a prosecution may be appealed by a law enforcement officer under the process established by section 4 (4).
Delay in publication
8 (1) The Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General or ADAG may direct publication in the Gazette of those matters referred to in section 5 or 7 be delayed if to do so would be in the interests of the administration of justice.
(2) A delay under subsection (1) must not extend beyond the completion of the prosecution or matter or any related prosecution or matter.

So the way I see this is that if these directions are delayed in getting to the Gazette then we can find out what is going on as soon as the trial ends. Hopefully it won't be dropped but if it is , that could be a good thing. Because at that time we will get whatever information that was given to the SP from the BC Gazette.
