More news from the secret world of Lesley du Toit, the premier's international contractor of mystery: according to our operatives, Ms. du Toit is jetting back to Pretoria after spending at least the past three weeks in Victoria. But she'll be returning in April - the same month former conflict of interest commissioner Ted Hughes is set to release his B.C. Children and Youth Review. Meanwhile, civil service watercoolers are bubbling with speculation Ms. du Toit may eventually be appointed the deputy minister of children and family development - a post presently being filled on an acting basis by former comptroller general Arn van Iersel.
