Premier Christy Clark has announced her intention for Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick to be sworn in as Minister of Agriculture later this afternoon by Her Honour, Lt.-Gov. Judith Guichon.
“The protection of farmland and support for farming families is a priority for this government, and Norm brings a wealth of experience as a former Minister of Agriculture,” said Premier Christy Clark. “I want to thank Pat Pimm for leading an ambitious agenda to strengthen and grow B.C.’s agriculture industry. Right now, he needs to focus on his family, his health and recovery.”
“I’m looking forward to getting to work, and that starts with reconnecting with stakeholders, sitting down and working together on our common goal of a sustainable and thriving agricultural sector,” said Letnick. “We’ll work together to ensure British Columbia’s farmers and ranchers have a bright future, for generations to come.”
Pimm will continue to serve as MLA for Peace River North.
