Those familiar with Attorney General Geoff Plant's thinking say the provincial Liberal minister would be more likely to announce he's not running in the next election rather than resign from cabinet, as is being reported by BCTV. That's consistent with a previous statement he made in December to the Vancouver Sun. So if he's leaving the executive council (and that's by no means certain), it's likely someone else (read: Premier Gordon Campbell) made that decision for him. In other related news, the attorney general is said to be going on a Hawaiian vacation for two weeks in early February, with his wife Janet staying on the tropical island for another two weeks after that. The legislature resumes sitting on February 8.
