The following statement is from Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Houston on the retirement of Dave Wilson:
On behalf of the Progressive Conservative Caucus, I send gratitude and well-earned respect to Dave Wilson on the news of his retirement.
Since 2003, Dave has distinguished himself as a public servant whose first priority was always the people he served. He was an exemplary constituency MLA, an able House Leader and a compassionate Health Minister.
On a personal note, I enjoyed working with Dave on the Standing Committee on Public Accounts and have extraordinary respect for the work he did on behalf of first responders. That important work may be his greatest political legacy.
I wish Dave every success as he takes on new challenges and thank him for his service to our province.
