Parliamentary secretary for seniors appointed

PREMIER John Horgan has appointed Ronna-Rae Leonard, MLA for Courtenay-Comox, as parliamentary secretary for seniors.

“Ronna-Rae Leonard has a strong record of getting results for her community,” said Horgan. “I know she will work diligently with the minister of health to make life better for seniors in our province.”

As parliamentary secretary for seniors, Leonard will work with Adrian Dix, Minister of Health, to improve and strengthen services for seniors, and ensure they receive dignified and quality care.

Leonard assumes responsibility for seniors from Anne Kang, who recently became minister of citizens’ services. Kang retains responsibility for multiculturalism.
