As many of you know, provincial Liberals are in the process of voting on whether they support Gordon Campbell's continued leadership of the party. But those opposed to him staying on might want to think twice before voting against him. The reason: the Basi-Virk trial is expected to conclude in April 2011. But the results of the Liberals' leadership endorsement ballot will be announced well before then - at the party's November biennial convention. As a result, there are some who think it would be better if the premier stepped aside after the trial concludes so he can take with him whatever baggage comes out during those legal proceedings.
