MLA’s critic role expands

Shuswap Opposition MLA Greg Kyllo to watch over BC Hydro

Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo’s role within the BC Liberal Party is expanding.

Kyllo, who had already been serving in a role as the B.C. Liberals’ critic for jobs, tourism and technology, has been handed additional critic responsibilities by Official Opposition Leader Andrew Wilkinson.

Kyllo will be taking on the role of critic for BC Hydro in addition to his other roles.

“This represents a new challenge for me, as I work to hold the government to account on any issues related to BC Hydro in this province,” says Kyllo.

“We’ve already seen Energy Minister Michelle Mungall bungle a planned Hydro rate freeze for consumers, so I will be watching this file closely to ensure future promises made to British Columbians are kept by this government,” Kyllo said.

A news release from the Liberals announcing Kyllo’s new responsibility notes he brings extensive business experience to both critic roles.
