homophobic cabinet shuffle?

Gordon Campbell announced the newly suffled cabinet today, which we’d all been expecting given the recent resignations and illness.

What came somewhat unexpectedly was that Ted Nebbeling, minister of Community Charter & the 2010 Olympics was also dropped from the cabinet. Nebbeling, who just today announced that he had married his long-time partner last fall. While I certainly hope that the reasons for his dismissal from cabinet are not related, the timing of it makes me suspect that sadly, they are.
