Plutonic Power Corporation Inc. may have added another former provincial Liberal aide to its payroll. It's our understanding David Cyr, ministerial assistant to House Leader and Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation Minister Mike de Jong, is leaving the legislature to work for the the independent power producer. Other former Campbell administration staffers presently working for Plutonic include Robert Poore, former executive assistant to Revenue Minister Rick Thorpe, and Tom Syer, former policy co-ordination and issues management deputy chief of staff to Premier Gordon Campbell. Also on Plutonic's staff directory are corporate communications director Elisha Moreno, former BC Hydro Corp. media relations manager, and lands resource management director Bill Irwin, former tourism, sport and art acting assistant deputy minister. Mr. Cyr hasn't yet returned a phone call from Public Eye.
