Today Port Moody-Coquitlam BC Liberal MLA Iain Black announced that he is leaving the Christy Clark government for a job with the Vancouver Board of Trade. Black will begin his new role as President and CEO of the Vancouver Board of Trade on October 3rd.
Interesting to note that Iain Black’s riding of Port Moody-Coquitlam is the very same riding where Christy Clark was elected while serving as the Deputy Premier in Gordon Campbell’s government. You have to wonder who will be seeking the nomination in the riding of Port Moody-Coquitlam.
Black’s resignation comes in the same week that Barry Penner, Chilliwack-Hope MLA announced his resignation.
