Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman has been responsible for the government's gambling and booze files for most of his cabinet career. But, under the new Clark administration, he's been shuffled to head up the ministry of energy and mines. Speaking with Public Eye, Mr. Coleman said he felt "fine" about losing those files, describing them as being a "bit like whack-a-moles at the PNE. One things goes down, another thing pops up." As such, he said, "It's probably time someone else had that portfolio" - specifically Shirley Bond, the province's new solicitor general.
