A dinner honouring Gordon Campbell's contribution to the construction industry is being turned into a dinner honouring his political legacy, Public Eye has learned. The decision to do so was made following the premier's announcement yesterday that he would be stepping aside. As a result, the Builder of the Decade Dinner is being moved to a larger space within the Vancouver Convention Centre to accomodate around 1,000 guests - approximately double the number who were initially expected to attend. Ticket sales are also being expanded to include members of the business community outside the construction industry.
