Earlier, we reported the premier's former special advisor Ken Dobell would be remaining as a director with 2010 LegaciesNow and the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games Organizing Committee. But, in an interview with Public Eye, Law Society of British Columbia public affairs manager Brad Daisley said Mr. Dobell has "offered to step down" from his post as a lay bencher with the society "until the current proceedings have run their course. And the law society has accepted that offer. And that's where matters stand right now." Mr. Daisley confirmed that offer was made on Monday - the same day it was announced Mr. Dobell would be pleading guilty to violating the province's Lobbyists Registration Act.
