Earlier today, we reported former provincial Liberal candidate Jeannie Kanakos had been appointed to the board of directors of the BC Land Title and Survey Authority. In an email, the board's business development and communications vice president clarified how that appointment came about. According to Liza Aboud, the province suggested three names to fill that position - including Ms. Kanakas. After that, "the board, along with an independent consultant, conducted a comprehensive skills analysis to select the successful nominee. It was determined that Ms. Kanakos has the right blend of experience and education to contribute to the governance of the LTSA." Ms. Aboud also stated the authority is an independent agency.
