Finance Minister Colin Hansen made the announcement just before 12 p.m. MST time to CKNW.

Hansen says the Liberal cabinet asked Bennett to resign because he wasn’t participating as a team player.

Bennett has been vocal about his views on Premier Gordon Campbell, saying he should resign sooner than the Premier had originally indicated.

There is no word on who will replace Bennett as Energy Minister, an important position and one that those in the oil and gas industry in the Northeast rely upon heavily.
