As some of our astute readers may be aware, the select standing committee on public accounts is in the process of hiring British Columbia's next auditor general. That process hasn't been without controversy. But it is expected Wayne Strelioff's replacement will be announced shortly. After all, the final meeting of that committee is scheduled to wrap up at 1:00 today. No word yet on who the successful candidate will be. Although many suspect former comptroller general Arn Van Iersel's name is among those being considered. Meanwhile, in related news, the special committee to appoint a merit commissioner will also be puffing out white smoke sometime soon, having had its final meeting on Saturday.
