The premier's chief of staff, Martyn Brown, is on the move - geographically speaking, that is. Public Eye has learned Mr. Brown's Cobble Hill residence is up for sale. Asking price: $359,995. The real estate agency responsible for the sale, Ken Neal and Associates, notes the "one owner home has been meticulously maintained since day one" (no surprises there) and features "a huge master with double closets and luxurious en suite including a corner soaker tub" - perfect for relaxing after a hard day's work running the province.
When notified Mr. Brown may be leaving his constituency, Malahat-Juan de Fuca New Democrat MLA John Horgan quipped, "I hope he'll be able to get the same steady representation wherever he goes. I would like him to stay within the boundaries though to help build a vibrant economy in the western communities because it really is a loss to the community. I'm saddened by his departure." No word yet on where Mr. Brown will be moving - although closer to the capital city is a good bet, according to the rumour mill.
