Premier Christy Clark has released the following statement regarding John Winter’s retirement from the BC Chamber of Commerce:
“During John Winter’s 18 years at the BC Chamber of Commerce, the world changed immeasurably - from a period of sustained growth in North America to a global recession, and five different Premiers. Through it all, British Columbia was lucky to have John Winter at the helm of the chamber.
"As a successful businessman, and a tireless advocate for free enterprise in this province, he believed in giving back to the community. He was a key member of the Small Business Roundtable and was awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for community service.
“I wish John and his family all the best in the next chapter of their lives. I can’t think of anyone more deserving of a little rest and relaxation.”
