BC Liberals announce MLA critic roles

Darpan News Desk BC Liberals, 01 Dec, 2020
  • BC Liberals announce MLA critic roles

Interim Leader of the Official Opposition Shirley Bond announced the new BC Liberal MLA critic roles today. The team brings exceptional skills, energy, and a commitment to hold John Horgan and the NDP government to account.

“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.”

The 28-member BC Liberal caucus will make sure there is an integrated response to the health and economic crisis that British Columbia is currently facing. “I'm proud to work with such a talented team of passionate MLAs who will use their diverse skills and experience to ask tough questions, raise important issues, and work hard on behalf of their constituents,” added Bond. “Andrew Wilkinson has agreed to support multiple critic portfolios given his experience across many of these files, and I thank him for that. Our BC Liberal caucus is ready to get to work as we hold John Horgan and the NDP accountable for the promises they made and push for the bold actions that are necessary during these unprecedented times.”
