This week, Public Eye exclusively revealed:

Although he still is holding out hope for the long-term;

* former premier Rita Johnston has said she would be "inclined" to take out a provincial Conservative membership "if they can pull it together;"

* the Campbell administration has refused to disclose the salary of a top bureaucrat in an apparent violation of its own laws;

* the Campbell administration's senior civil servants are expected to be able to "create a crisis to force change" so they can "capitalize on the best opportunity;" and
