The second term Delta South MLA from Ladner was among the BC Liberal critics announced on Monday by Interim Official Opposition Leader Shirley Bond.
“As the Official Opposition, we have a responsibility to make sure this government deals with the critical issues facing British Columbians. Our caucus represents people from all across the province and we will ensure that their voices are heard in Victoria,” said Bond. “It is essential that the government’s approach to COVID-19, from a health and economic perspective, is transparent and effective so that all British Columbians can have confidence in the future of our province.”
