* the government's HSTinBC.ca Website Website - which went live on January 21 - had attracted just 140,101 visits as June 6.

* Vision Vancouver city councillor Geoff Meggs has confirmed he's been encouraged to run for the provincial New Democrat nomination in Vancouver-Fairview. That's the same nomination Sierra Club of BC executive director George Heyman has been considering making a bid for; and

* rumours Hospital Employees' Union secretary-business manager Judy Darcy is thinking about running for the provincial New Democrat nomination in the New Westminster, the riding presently held by MLA Dawn Black.
