Premier-designate Christy Clark's pick to be the new head of the provincial public service has a long-standing association with second-place Liberal leadership candidate Kevin Falcon. John Dyble was named deputy transportation minister in June 2005, back when Mr. Falcon was responsible for that department. Then, four years later, Mr. Dyble became the province's top health services bureaucrat when Mr. Falcon was put in charge of that ministry. Earlier today, the present head of the public service Allan Seckel announced March 14 would be his last day with government.
