Minister Oscar Lathlin Deceased
Manitoba Aboriginal and Northern Affairs Minister Oscar Lathlin died early Sunday morning, the premier's press secretary confirmed today. Lathlin was at his home in The Pas when he took ill suddenly Saturday night.
He died about 1 a.m. Sunday morning in The Pas Health Complex, a family relative on the Opaskwayak Cree Nation said Sunday afternoon.
Once-You-Begin-Thinking-About-It-Update: Minister Lathlin's death probably means that Culture, Heritage, Tourism & Sport Minister Eric Robinson is going to return to Aboriginal & Northern Affairs.
I would imagine Wellington rookie Flo Marcelino takes the inside lane to replacing Minister Robinson at CHTS.
