The two were named to the positions following Monday’s sudden resignation of former chair Trent Derrick and former vice-chair Shuirose Valimohamed. The recent release of a special advisor’s report outlining systemic racism and a culture of fear at the district prompted the resignations as they pair said they could not work in such a system.
A byelection to replace the two vacant seats at the board table will be held in both Prince George and Mackenzie. Valimohamed was the Mackenzie trustee on the board. A byelectons officer will be appointed within 30 days and the byelection will be held within 80 days of the appointment of the officer.
