CKNW legislative bureau chief Sean Leslie is reporting Premier Gordon Campbell will be "making the announcement this afternoon of a cabinet shuffle." According to Mr. Leslie, "Children and Family Development Minister Stan Hagen will be shuffled out of that hot potato ministry" - supposedly to tourism, sport and the arts. Those in the know tell Public Eye he'll be replaced by Tom Christensen. Meanwhile, House Leader Mike de Jong is headed to aboriginal relations and reconciliation, handing over his labour responsibilities to Olga Ilich. And Gordon Hogg is said to be moving back into cabinet as the head of new ministry.
