Ernie Fage steps down
Neither Mr. Hamm (the outgoing premier) nor Mr. MacDonald (the newly selected premier) would specify what Mr. Fage did wrong, saying only that the minister felt he had violated the code of conduct.
"The discussions at cabinet are confidential and will remain so," Mr. Hamm said after the meeting.
So, they discussed it at cabinet, found that maybe someone's head should roll, but we don't know why. Naturally the Liberals and the NDP want full disclosure of these discussions, but best of luck with that - we wouldn't want to spoil the reputation of Honest John as his ass disappears through the door.
