Clark Leaving as Chair of LCBO
CBJ — The Chair of the Liquor Control Board of Ontario will step down at the end of the month after less than a year in the job.
Ontario Finance Minister Vic Fedeli says Ed Clark will resign his post at the Crown corporation on Aug. 30.
Clark took on the job in January under the previous Liberal government, earning a symbolic salary of $1 per year.
The corporation, in charge of the sale of alcoholic beverages across the province, had also been tasked under the previous government with the sale and distribution of recreational marijuana once it becomes legalized in October.
Premier Doug Ford will be looking to put in someone who is more closely aligned with his political way of thinking.
