In December 2005, Speaker of the Legislative Assembly Bill Barisoff appointed provincial Liberal campaigner Louise Burgart to the supposedly non-partisan electoral boundaries commission. But that appointment didn't work out too well because - three months later - Ms. Burgart resigned following sustained coverage of her partisan background. Still, don't feel too sorry for the Apex Mountain Resort owner. After all, last Thursday, the Campbell administration appointed the former BC School Superintendents' Association president to the University of North British Columbia's board of governors. Fancy that!
