Craig James's tenure as the province's acting chief electoral officer will soon come to an end, with Keith Archer taking over that position on September 1. So what will Mr. James do then? Well, Public Eye has learned the government is moving to appoint him clerk of the legislative assembly - the top non-partisan staffer in the buildings. The present holder of that office, George MacMinn, will then take on a new role: clerk consultant.
