It looks like a number of senior aides are digging themselves out of the Rockpile. Ministerial assistants Cheryl Maitland (small business and revenue) Jake McEwan (agriculture and lands) and Steve Puhallo (tourism, sports and the arts) have tendered their resignations and will be vacating the legislative precincts after the spring session wraps up. Mr. McEwan is bound for the private sector. But Ms. Maitland and Mr. Puhallo will still be working for the Liberals as regional party organizers in the heartlands of British Columbia. Further departures are expected.
