It looks like BC'S Auditor-General may get to keep his job for another two years.
That is, if he wants it.
After much debate and controversy, an all-party committee of the legislature has changed its mind and voted unanimously to offer John Doyle another two years on the job once his current six year term expires in the spring.
No reasons are given for the decision, which was quietly posted on the legislative assembly website.
But the committee was publicly roasted after deciding to end Doyle's appointment and conduct a national search for his replacement.
Premier Christy Clark then announced last week she wanted to extend the terms for auditors to eight years, and suggested the committee offer Doyle an extra two years.
If he accepts the new offer, Doyle would be on the job until October of 2015.
