LANGLEY, B.C. — One organization is clearly pleased to welcome a new government into power on Canada’s left coast, and that’s the B.C. Trucking Association (BCTA).
The BCTA has congratulated the B.C. Liberals on their landslide election victory May 16, and want to sit down with members of the new caucus as soon as possible to discuss key transportation issues.
The topics up for discussion will include the role of the Insurance Corp. of British Columbia, B.C. Rail’s involvement in trucking, Workers Compensation Board reform, truck safety and highway infrastructure development.
Premier-elect Gordon Campbell will be appointing a new cabinet, including a new transportation minister, on June 5. Former transportation critic, Doug Symons, did not run in this year’s election.
