Who's that we spy on the floor of the provincial legislature? Why it's none other than former federal Conservative national campaign co-chair John Reynolds! Not surprisingly, his presence during the first few minutes of the legislature's afternoon sitting had many press gallery members asking what Mr. Reynolds was doing down at the Rockpile. And we have the answer. In an interview with Public Eye, Mr. Reynolds - who spent much of members' statements chatting with Transportation Minister Kevin Falcon - told us he dropped by to pay his respects to Speaker of the Legislative Assembly Bill Barisoff, as well as meet with Forests and Range Minister Rich Coleman. And what was that meeting about? "Just talking politics," responded Mr. Reynolds. "Nothing nefarious," Minister Coleman later quipped.
