I bet the Wizards' private Emails (and/or erasable whiteboards) are humming today.
Because, as we had an inkling of on Monday, it really does appear that Gordon Hogg is not one of them.
Rob Shaw has the story in the VTC. Here is his lede an a tiny bit more (but go read it all):
The chairman of the B.C. Liberal caucus has launched his own review into a multicultural ethnic outreach scandal, saying he has a moral obligation to investigate how taxpayer resources were used in the scandal.
Liberal MLA Gordon Hogg, who chairs the 45-person government caucus, said he launched the review because he has “a fiduciary responsibility to be able to respond to my caucus that the funds allocated for the purposes of caucus — work, research, communications — has been handled appropriately.”
Hogg’s investigation will parallel that of Premier Christy Clark’s deputy minister, John Dyble, who launched his own review last week...
...The multicultural (strategy) document (that started the dual investigations) names numerous caucus officials as having apparent roles in the ethnic plan, including outreach director Lorne Mayencourt, executive director Primrose Carson, research director Blair Phelps and former communications officials Stephen Harris and Jeff Melland.
Carson is the top official in caucus, but Hogg said she ultimately reports to him...
...Hogg has tapped Liberal MLAs Murray Coell and Rob Howard to help him conduct the investigation. Neither Coell nor Howard is seeking re-election...
There are issues with this approach in terms of the untouchables in the BC Liberal Party itself, but it kinda/sorta looks like, perhaps, these Three Muskateers, two of whom are Bully/Vader-proof, want to make sure the Wizards don't wriggle off that deep-seet hook of their own making.
Also, does it not signal something about Mr. Hogg's future intentions after the fall?
