After winning a majority government in May’s B.C. general election, Christy Clark has unveiled her new cabinet of 19 Ministers.
“Never forget that the world needs British Columbia,” said Premier Clark to a large crowd of supporters and media outside Canada Place. “British Columbians sent me, sent this province, the most talented group of MLAs that, I think, has ever sat in the legislature.”
Premier Clark continued saying that there is a “blend of experience and fresh eyes coming to government…representing the breadth of this province.”
