Christy Clark sworn in as MLA

Christy Clark was sworn in as MLA for Kelowna-Westside at a ceremony in Vancouver this morning.

Clark was joined by Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training Shirley Bond, Attorney General Suzanne Anton and Energy and Mines Minister Bill Bennett.

All three were assigned new portfolios in Clark's early-June cabinet shuffle. Bennett was also made responsible for conducting a core review of government services, with the aim of reducing spending by $100 million over the next two years. Bennett will release the terms of reference for the core review tomorrow.
