Bryson is new CRD chair

Not only is Central Saanich Mayor Alastair Bryson busy organizing a by-election for up to two new councillors after the resignation of Terry Siklenka and the announcement by Councillor Adam Olsen that he could be running for Green Party MLA in the next provincial election, now he has taken on the role as chairperson of the Capital Regional District.

Bryson was appointed last week after he won a vote against Saanich Councillor Judy Brownoff and Metchosin Mayor John Ranns.

Langford Councillor Denise Blackwell, who has previously held the chair, was appointed as vice-chair after beating out Graham Hill, mayor of View Royal.
