WINNIPEG – Former NDP MLA Kevin Chief has a new gig, just weeks after quitting the legislature.
Chief has re-surfaced as the new VP of the Business Council of Manitoba.
In a release sent out Monday, the Business Council says Chief will take on a number of roles, including helping new Canadians and members of our indigenous community play a greater role in the economy.
Chief had been touted as a possible future leader of the New Democrats but resigned instead, saying he wanted to spent more time with his young family.
He was first elected in 2011 and was easily re-elected in his Point Douglas constituency in 2016.
A by-election will be held to elect a new MLA for the area.
