“I am honoured and humbled to receive the confidence of my regional colleagues to continue on as chair of the BC/Yukon Conservative Caucus,” said Mr. Zimmer. “My colleagues and I will continue to provide a strong voice for the region and work hard to ensure that the interests of our region are heard.”
Mel Arnold, Member of Parliament for North Okanagan-Shuswap, has been elected vice-chair.
“I would also like to offer my congratulations to Mel Arnold on his election as vice-chair and I look forward to working with him,” said Mr. Zimmer.
