Two senior Ignatieff aides are leaving their positions in the Opposition Leader's Office to return to Toronto.
Mark Sakamoto and Alexis Levine, both lawyers who have been part of Michael Ignatieff's inner circle since his 2006 leadership bid, confirmed their decisions in separate e-mails to The Globe and Mail tonight. They were part of the "Toronto gang" around Mr. Ignatieff.
I am not sure if it is directly related to his departure but you may remember Mark Sakamoto as he was the news just the other day. No word as of yet on the fate of communications director Jill Fairbrother, but I assume she too is gone.
With all of these changes in the OLO is it any wonder that Ignatieff wanted all those changes to EI.
