Premier John Horgan has announced four more appointments in what he says is his desire to bring relief to taxpayers.
He says “For 16 years under the Liberal government, ordinary people struggled to get ahead – nowhere have they seen that more than in out-of-control housing and Hydro costs.”
Horgan has appointed Kenneth G. Peterson chair of BC Hydro.
Pearson has been CEO of Powerex, the marketing and trading subsidiary of BC Hydro, for the last 10 years.
Joy MacPhail is the new chair of ICBC.
MacPhail is a former long-time M-L-A and former NDP cabinet minister.
Cassie J. Doyle was appointed chair of the BC Housing Management Commission.
She is a former deputy minister at both the provincial and federal government levels and recently served as the CEO of the Canadian International Resources and Development Institute.
Cathy McLay, the chief financial officer and executive vice-president, finance and corporate services at Translink was appointed a director of ICBC.
Horgan says they were all chosen for their strong track records of delivering effective leadership that benefits the public.
“Each of them will face significant challenges because of the choices made by the previous government. All will play a key role in making life more affordable for British Columbians. They will work hard to ensure the organizations they are responsible for are well managed, properly governed and well-aligned with the government’s mandate, and I know they are ready to get to work building a better B.C. for everyone.”
