Weekly Wrap Up - June 24, 2011

This week, Public Eye exclusively revealed:

* former CTV News Vancouver anchor Pamela Martin has joined Premier Christy Clark's office;

* the provincial civil service has warned the premier there might be problems if she keeps her controversial Liberal leadership campaign commitment to consult on creating a new holiday in February;

* when Clark was running for the provincial Liberal leadership, she took a page out of her predecessor's playbook and promised to get the public involved in the elimination of government red tape. But the civil service has warned her that effort, which took the form of the Waste Buster Website under Gordon Campbell's leadership, didn't meet with much success in the past; and

* British Columbia's financial services regulator is launching a sweeping review that could result in major changes to the governance of the province's credit unions.
