Greg Weadick -- "Advanced Education Minister Hits The Ground Running.
Edmonton: Thursday morning, his main title was M-L-A for Lethrbidge-West. As of Friday morning, he's the new Advanced Education Minister.
Greg Weadick says, " It was a real nice experience - the Lieutenant Governor and the Premier swore us in ... both Verlyn Olson and myself, at Government House, this morning at 8:30". He noted, "It's quite a humbling experience to be there and go through that process".
Weadick says having worked in the Advanced Education department for the past year with former Minister Doug Horner has prepared him for the job ahead. He believes he's "up-to-speed".
Weadick already knows the people in the department and he's seen the budget documents to be presented next Thursday. He says he'll be going over them again along with his department's business plan and other briefing documents.
One initiative critically important to Weadick is to build on accessibility for students, where they can transfer from one institute to another in the province.
