Clark has named a new parliamentary secretary to the minister of education for independent schools (better known as private schools).
Simon Gibson, the B.C. Liberal MLA for Abbotsford-Mission, takes over from Maple Ridge-Mission MLA Marc Dalton. The latter has left the government caucus to sit as an independent as he seeks the federal Conservative nomination in Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge.
“Simon has been a strong representative for the people of Abbotsford-Mission, and his abilities will be put to good use in this new role,” Clark stated in a news release. “I’m pleased to have him joining our excellent team of parliamentary secretaries, advocating for independent schools throughout B.C.”
