* provincial New Democrat leader Adrian Dix has chosen not to appoint Mike Farnworth to the opposition caucus's executive;

* former federal parliamentarian Stephen Owen will have a substantial amount of latitude in determining who gets the $500,000 in government funding available for the yes and no sides in the coming harmonized sales tax referendum; and
