Rich Coleman now appears to have everything he ever wanted - although, according to the Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA and former Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer, he didn't ask for any of it. As the province's new solicitor general, he'll be responsible for the police and correctional services. But Mr. Coleman - who once ran a real estate management and consulting company - will also have continued responsibility for housing, building policy, the Liquor Distribution Branch, gaming policy and enforcement and the British Columbia Lottery Corp. In other words, he'll be presiding over what looks to be a ministry of his own creation. But, speaking with Public Eye, Mr. Coleman stated, "I didn't ask for anything in particular. The premier asked me if I would consider this and I said yes. So I'm happy to do it."
