“I want to thank my family, my friends, constituents, colleagues, and many volunteers who have supported me since I first ran to become a member of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia,” she said in a statement yesterday. “Serving as the MLA for the Cariboo-Chilcotin has been both an honour and a privilege. I have enjoyed working with and for the wonderful constituents whom I serve. We together have accomplished much, through many challenges, struggles and strife, but the resiliency of our people makes the Cariboo-Chilcotin a place we all call home.
“I will not be running in the next Provincial Election.
