Earlier today, The Vancouver Sun's Gordon Hamilton reported Premier Gordon Campbell will "reconvene the legislature as soon as possible to pass an amendment needed to finance Vancouver's Olympic village." So when is as soon as possible, you may wonder? Well, it could be Tuesday next week - the same day as Barack Obama is sworn-in as America's forty-fourth president. But if the session last until Thursday, there may not be many government ministers left in the precincts. Because that's the first day of Opportunities North: The Northern Economic Summit - which is scheduled to be attended by at least ten executive council members.
