As quoted: As attorney-general, B.C.’s David Eby seems to be front and centre in nearly every file.

ICBC, money laundering, proportional representation, banning big money, lobbying reform — you name it, he’s involved.

David Eby’s not sure how close the B.C. government is to fixing the ICBC “dumpster fire.”

 It’s a stark contrast to some of Eby’s recent predecessors, who appeared to take a back seat on the big issues, rather than grabbing the steering wheel.

Eby says the job is both more difficult and easier than he imagined.

“I really thought I was busy before, but to be honest, I had no idea. My schedule is completely crazy – I have a three-year-old at home, and so it’s hard to balance work and family and all the responsibilities feeling the pressure of minority government and wanting to get some things done,” he said in an interview with National Observer.

“I’m working with a lot of smart people on some really difficult problems, grounded in communities’ requests of government, and I feel really good about that, so it’s very energizing.”
