Victoria's very own vast right-wing conspiracy may have lost one of its members. As previously reported, each Friday a group of influential conservatives, known to some as the Octagon, gathers at an undislcosed restaurant to share lunch and amicably discuss plans for world domination. Among the conspirators: Liberal MLA Jeff Bray, who was recently defeated in Victoria-Beacon Hill by New Democrat leader Carole James. But now that Mr. Bray has been elevated to the high and mucky position of executive director of government caucus, some Octagon members are wondering whether he'll continue to break bread with them.
