Campbell administration fixture Andy Orr - who has been the executive director of the public affairs bureau since 2001 - is leaving the provincial government. He's joining Kimanda Jarzebiak's firm Ascent Public Affairs Inc. as its vice-president, taking over from Rozi Dobreci. Mr. Orr, whose resignation takes effect today, had been the principal communications conduit between the administration and the press gallery. So it's hard to overstate the significance of his departure.
