Earlier, we reported Lesley du Toit has been on the ground in Victoria for the past two weeks as part of her contract with the premier's office to "provide advice on transforming services for children and youth in British Columbia." And now we've learned Ms. du Toit, the executive director of the Child and Youth Care Agency for Development in South Africa, will be the Garden City for at least the next week, working out of the West Annex in social development strategic policy deputy minister Philip Steenkamp's old office. Of course, it goes without saying that the only reason this squib is news is because our good friends in the West Annex don't want to comment on the details of Ms. du Toit work, seeming to treat her contract as some kind of cloak and dagger exercise. But we digress.
