B.C. Premier John Horgan unveiled his cabinet lineup for a new majority NDP government on Nov. 26, with a few newcomers in key positions.
Josie Osborne was sworn into the Legislature virtually on Nov. 24 as the new BC New Democrat MLA for Mid Island-Pacific Rim.
“I was proud to work alongside the BC NDP during my time as the Mayor of Tofino on the shared issues of transportation, housing and reconciliation,” said Osborne in a press release. “As MLA I will continue to champion these important issues and I’m honoured to represent people from across our beautiful region in the legislature.”
