 Kootenay West MLA Katrine Conroy released the following statement concerning her position on the opposition caucus executive.

I have resigned my position as Whip for the Opposition caucus. Caucus was informed of my decision today.

The position of Whip is elected by caucus members and it is a role that I have held unchallenged for five years.

The Whip is responsible for ensuring caucus discipline, facilitating caucus responsibilities as Members of the Legislature and ensuring caucus unity.

To do this job effectively, I must have the trust, confidence and support of the Leader and the caucus.

Recent events have led me to conclude that the required support is no longer there.

My resignation is effective immediately.
