A very shocking development has just occurred inside Liberal premier Christy Clark’s office as her Chief of Staff Ken Boessenkool has submitted his resignation:
“I was involved in an incident where I acted inappropriately” after being involved in a “regrettable incident” in which he “let his family down.”
More to come…
Update: From Global BC’s Twitter feed: Premier’s chief of staff, Ken Boessenkool has resigned, following News Hour investigation into alleged altercation at Victoria bar
Update: Boessenkool’s letter of resignation
Earlier this month I was involved in an incident where I acted inappropriately. I was wrong, regretted my behaviour very much and immediately and unconditionally apologized.
Notwithstanding my genuine apology and sense of regret, and following my meeting with you earlier today I tender my letter of resignation as your Chief of Staff effective immediately.
This will give me a chance to return to Calgary to be with my family – who I have also let down – and from whom I have been separated on a weekly basis for most of the last eight months.
I have been very proud to be at your side and proud of what I helped the team accomplish. Nothing should stand in the way of your successful leadership and the accomplishments of your government in creating jobs and making family life affordable.
I wish you the very best.
