From the radioactive no-man's land of children and family development comes this report from the frontlines: according to our operatives, ministry communications director Theresa Lumsdon has completed her tour of duty and will be transferring to another theatre of war. No intelligence yet on who's going to replace her or where Ms. Lumsdon is headed in the bureau. But we're told she's not the only spin doctor who will be patching up media relations wounds in a different ministry. And the bureau must still find a replacement for health communications director Michelle Stewart, who departed for the Vancouver Island Health Authority in October. All of which means we could be in for a spot of public affairs staff churn over the coming months.
