The chattering classes have a new guessing game this week. It's called who's going to be British Columbia's new child and youth representative.

Someone, for example, like respected Saskatchewan Provincial Court Judge Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond. So let's see whether they were successful in that search, shall we?
