Premier Christy Clark announced today that, as part of her jobs plan, she'll be looking to increase the number of international students in British Columbia by 50 percent over the next four years. That's likely good news for Emery Dosdall, who was Ms. Clark's deputy when she was education minister and is now president of the British Columbia Council of International Education. The council's job is to position the province as the "leading quality destination for international learners." Prior to taking on that leadership role, Mr. Dosdall served as the government's educations and skills development trade commissioner. That position was created by the Campbell administration in 2007 to "oversee the implementation of government's strategic international and skills development initiatives for the Asia Pacific Gateway."
