FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm announced this afternoon that he will be resigning from the BC Liberal caucus after seeking legal council due allegations that were brought forward against him.
He says that though he will be stepping down from the provincial party caucus, he will not be resigning as the representative for the Peace River North riding, and will continue to sit as an independent MLA.
A copy of the release that was sent by Pimm’s office can be seen below:
“I want to inform my constituents that allegations have been brought against me which require me to obtain legal counsel. While this matter is being resolved, I have stepped away from the Government Caucus and my role as Deputy Chair of the Committee of the Whole of the Legislature. I will be remaining on as MLA for Peace River North and sitting in the Legislature as an independent member.”
Pimm’s office added that as this matter is before the courts, there will be no further comment.
