British Columbia Premier Christy Clark has issued an apology and launched a review after a leaked document showed her government planned to woo ethnic votes with provincial resources.

Why have a highly paid High Five Portfolio packaged Deputy Premier at Premier Christy Clark's side if he isn't there for any reason other than as a messenger of bad news to the Legislature?
Side-by-side-relegated-to-the-BackBenches Kevin Falcon and George Abbott have both announced their intentions not to run as Candidates in the May 14, 2013 election .... so they are out of the picture to replace flagging-in-the-polls-of-public-opinion-Christy Clark today.
Which leaves Rich Coleman to step up to the Podium, to form a new Cabinet. New because before the Premier can step aside SHE has to lay-off every one of her hand picked Ministers.
Then it's RC's turn.
Coleman has always coveted the role of being the Leader of the BC Liberals, therefore one small step for mankind, one step to being the 36th Premier today, why not?
Think of the Photo Ops that could be splashed around of Premier Coleman. All non-partisan of course...... BC Liberal Party name was going to be renamed to CCLP aka Christy Clark Liberal Party, it would be a snap to change the acronym election material signs and brochures with a one Letter paste-over to RCLP aka Rich Coleman Liberal Party.
Now who would the New Seventy-one day wonder of a Premier, name to be HIS Deputy? Harry?
The choice of dates for the commencement and termination of a position is not straightforward because an appointment or resignation may be announced on one date and confirmed officially on a different date. Generally the "official" date has been preferred in this document, with mention in the footnote of any other date(s) involved. If, however, there was no Order in Council (OIC) or other official notice specifically naming the minister involved, the announcement date has been used.
