Public Eye has learned David Cunningham, the premier's deputy chief of staff, gave his notice earlier today. Mr. Cunningham, who was the principle pen for many of Gordon Campbell's stemwinders, is reportedly taking a government relations position with Telus Corp. He was also responsible for overseeing the public affairs bureau's speechwriting unit, which is currently headed by Rueben Bronee, and vetting many of the government's news releases. His resignation follows an announcement yesterday that the premier's chief of staff Martyn Brown will no longer be in charge of government communications.
