Last month, children and family development supremo Lesley du Toit's shared with ministry staffers her view that they shouldn't use the government's "official email network to advertise or send unnecessary messages to all of staff." This, in response to a message promoting Bike to Work Week - a program that has been strongly supported by the provincial government for the past 12 years. So one wonders what Ms. du Toit might think about the latest email from her colleague Linda Morris, the public affairs bureau's deputy minister. Writing to bureau members, Ms. Morris invites them to attend "a Lunch & Learn" session on July 27 with Rosemary Quinn of Fitness Works Personal Training Ltd. At that session, Ms. Quinn will be presenting her lecture "Journey of the Fat Cell" which teaches attendees how to "outsmart your fat cells." Which, we suppose, is one way of ensuring the government's word slaves practice the ActNow message box preached by the premier. The following is a complete copy of that email.
