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.
