VICTORIA, B.C. — There’s been a shake up at the B.C. Rail board table, but it’s not what the B.C. Trucking Association (BCTA) was hoping for.
The BCTA has been lobbying the province to force B.C. Rail out of the trucking industry. Although that has yet to materialize, the board of directors at B.C. Rail has a different look to it.
Six new members have been appointed, including: Bev Briscoe, owner of Hiway Refrigeration; Brian Kennin, chair of B.C.D. Pacific Capital Corp.; Len Marchand, engineer and lawyer; Patrick Rorison, director of Peace Country Maintenance; Jim Shepard, director of Imperial Oil; and Jim Yeates, chair of Burntstad.
Meanwhile, appointments of Hugh Gordon, Phillip Asp, Jean Leahy, Anne Pool and Diane Wood have been rescinded.
