Hill New Deputy Parliamentary Leader
OTTAWA, ONTARIO, CANADA -- Official Opposition Leader Stockwell Day,
in response to this week's resignations of House Leader Chuck Strahl
and Deputy Parliamentary Leader Deborah Grey, both former Canadian
Alliance Members of Parliament, reorganised his leadership team.
Grant Hill, a member of the Calgary Alberta Foothills Stake, was
named as the new Deputy Parliamentary Leader.
Hill, a father of six boys and a girl, left his Okotoks, Alberta,
surgical practice and his position as Chief of Staff at the High
River Hospital in 1990 to serve as a director on the board of the
Reform Party's Macleod Constituency Association. A year later he
became a Reform Party spokesman in the Speaker's Bureau. Two years
later, Hill won the Macleod seat in the federal election. In the two
succeeding elections, the majority of his constituents have continued
to elect him.
Previous to his new appointment, Hill had served as Health Critic in
the Shadow Cabinet (1994-199), and as Critic for Intergovernmental
Affairs and Official Languages (1999-2001). He was appointed as
Critic for Family Issues three months ago, and as Chairperson for the
Canadian Alliance Task Force on Health Care.
