It looks like there's been an outbreak of restructuring fever at the attorney general's court services branch. Among those infected: assistant deputy minister Helen Pedneault who has decided the branch no longer needs its four regional directors, who were responsible managing law court and sheriff services in the following areas: Interior, Northern, Vancouver Island and Vancouver Westminster. Those services will now report directly to branch headquarters as part of a fashionable move to eliminate silos within the ministry. We're told the staff filling those posts - Michael Christian, Alvin Glover, Bill Grandage and Joanne Pitzel - have been re-assigned.
