All is forgiven? -- Matt O'Grady once again to be editor of BCBusiness

[This post has been updated] Matt O'Grady is being welcomed back to Canada Wide Media's BCBusiness magazine as its editor, starting Monday. This was,curiously, revealed by a tweet from publisher Peter Legge. O'Grady had  resigned on principle from the magazine in 2011 over Legge's spiking of an investigative story. O'Grady then worked briefly for the Globe and Mail's Report on Business magazine and as executive editor of Canadian Business before returning to the Globe as its BC bureau chief, a job from which he was laid off last summer.

The decision to lure him back may have had something to do with a reorganization related to the departure of Gary Davies as publisher (who returned to Calgary) and the need for an experienced hand on the tiller at BCB, backstopping Tom Gierasimcsuk, who had been named vice-president, editorial of Canada Wide and was stickhandling the launch of BCLiving magazine. [Update: Gierasimcsuk is now the publisher of BCBusiness.]
