Have the good people of Victoria-Hillside moved into the legislature? After all, MLA Rob Fleming's fresh young face seems to have beome a common site at the Rockpile these days, according to the edifice's liberally-wagging tongues. A thorough search of the precincts says the answer to that question is no. But it turns out Mr. Fleming has cause to be lurking the legislative corridors.
In addition to being appointed chair designate of the public accounts committee, party leader Carole James has named him to the New Democrat's caucus executive committee (Russian translation: politbureau). Never heard of it? Don't worry, because we haven't either. But we're told the commitee will be responsible for plotting out caucus's grand political strategy (wat dat?). Other committee members include Ms. James and caucus officers Katrine Conroy, Mike Farnworth and Jenny Kwan.
