Word coming out of today's provincial government caucus meeting, held at the Fairmont Waterfront in Vancouver, is that former children and family development minister Gordon Hogg has been elected the new caucus chair. Mr. Hogg, who resigned from cabinet last year over the Doug Walls affair, beat out Alberni-Qualicum MLA Gillian Trumper for the job. He'll be replacing Columbia River-Revelstoke MLA Wendy McMahon. Mr. Hogg is said to have been Premier Gordon Campbell's favoured candidate.
