The ripples from the previous week's government re-structuring have reached the public affairs bureau. On Friday, individual directors were told which ministries they would serving. Among the changes: Liz Bicknell moves from charred ruin that was the ministry of management services to agriculture and lands, replacing Shawn Robbins. Mr. Robbins will now be soaking-up the sunny messages at tourism, sports and the arts. Meanwhile, Mike Long escapes from the collapsing sustainable resources management ministry into an empty directorship at transportation. And Public Eye fan club member Deborah Bowman, who has always been willing to assist us in whatever way she can, is transferred from the attorney general's ministry to aboriginal relations and reconciliation. Further information as it becomes available.
