LCBO confirms Bonnie Brooks has resigned chair’s position

The LCBO has confirmed that Bonne Brooks has resigned from the chair’s position. Mail from Christine Bujold of the board to The Bulldog says: “We were disappointed to receive Bonnie’s resignation yesterday but wish her well in her future endeavours.  We are pleased that Penny Lipsett, the current Vice Chair of the LCBO has agreed to serve as the Acting Chair as the government determines next steps in this process.”  The story, first broadcast late Tuesday on CP24 seemed to drop out of the news Wednesday morning.The story was broadcast concurrent with news about the strike vote by LCBO workers. Union president Warren Smokey Thomas was asked about it. He said he had never met Ms. Brooks. Workers voted 93 percent in favour of a strike.
