It looks like Stan Hagen will have at least one eyeball trained on our good friends at Community Living British Columbia, the independent authority responsible for providing services to the developmentally disabled. Today, the public service agency announced the ministry of children and family development would be hiring a senior bureaucrat to "monitor, evaluate, and make recommendations to manage the accountabilities of CLBC to the Minister of MCFD." According to that job description, the successful candidate will be required to "identify emerging issues with provincial implications" at the authority, assess their "public impact or political ramifications and alert the necessary stakeholders" - among other duties. An internal competition for that director-level job is being held, with the closing date set for May 11. One wonders if the ministry already has someone in mind for the position?
