Last year, we reported on the arrival of Ian "The Iceman" Todd at the Rockpile as a ministerial assistant. Almost immediately, there was a blizzard of speculation that Mr. Todd - the former chief of staff to Canadian Alliance leader Stockwell Day - would soon be promoted to higher (unelected) office. But that didn't happen. And now we hear Mr. Todd left the precincts on Friday to serve as the chief of staff to federal Conservative Citizenship and Immigration Minister Monte Solberg - a posting reported in this week's edition of The Hill Times.
