Did you know Premier Gordon Campbell has a Chinese community advisory committee? Not many do. Although, as reported earlier this month by The Vancouver Sun's Jeff Lee, the premier's office "issued a list to Chinese media identifying the members" - of which there are 17. So does that mean the premier also has an Indo-Canadian community advisory committee? Apparently, not. The government wasn't able to say, by publication time, why a similar council for that community doesn't exist. But the Campbell administration does have several structures under the ministry of economic development representing Indo-Canadian interests.
