Want to celebrate the end of the fall legislative session but don't have anywhere to go? Well, worry not because if you're a provincial government staffer, Earnscliffe Strategy Group Inc. has taken care of everything. Just show up to the Irish Times Pub, where the Ottawa lobbying firm is hosting a drink-up for ministerial and executive assistants and associated hanger-on-ers. Meanwhile, New Democrat members and staffers are already partying in the Opposition's caucus chamber, embedded deep within the fortified office known only as 201.
