Deputy to B.C. Premier’s toughest assignment: investigate his boss

John Dyble, the deputy minister to B.C. Premier Christy Clark, is expected to wrap up his investigation into the ethnic voter scandal within a week. He hasn’t yet interviewed his boss, and it’s not clear if he ever will.

If only from an optics standpoint, it’s a problematic assignment. The investigation does lead to the premier’s office. Ms. Clark’s deputy chief of staff has already resigned after speaking with Mr. Dyble, but there are several other names still connected with Ms. Clark’s team who are named in the leaked documents.
