Usually, when the provincial government issues an information bulletin at five o'clock (and not, at publication time, posted on their Website), it doesn't want that bulletin to get a lot of attention. So much for that idea. As Public Eye speculated on Sunday, Athana Mentzelopoulous has been appointed head of the public affairs bureau. But it also looks like she's going to be keeping her existing position as the deputy minister responsible for intergovernmental relations. The following is a copy of the bulletin.

VICTORIA - The government today announced that Athana Mentzelopoulos is
