VICTORIA - Premier Christy Clark issued the following statement on the appointment of a new Lieutenant Governor for British Columbia:
"On behalf of all British Columbians, I want to congratulate Judith Guichon on becoming the new Queen's representative for our province.
"She has a deep appreciation for the history and traditions of British Columbia and has spent a lifetime ensuring that we all stay connected to our roots - particularly through her work with the BC Cattlemen's Association.
"Those deep, abiding roots are what have driven Judith to get involved in her community, industry and province. She never has just stood by, but always sought ways to bring her perspective forward in a positive fashion and make our province better.
"In Judith Guichon, British Columbians have a representative that represents our values of hard work, tradition and a passion for our shared future.
"It's also appropriate to say thank-you once more to His Honour, Steven Point, for his dedication and service as Lieutenant Governor. His compassion, selflessness, intelligence and wit were always on full display for all British Columbians to witness. He has served with distinction, and for that we owe a great debt of thanks."
