Shachi Kurl is the new Canadian Federation of Independent Business director of provincial affairs for British Columbia and Yukon.
“Shachi has already hit the ground running. I am delighted to have her on our team that works on behalf of hard-working independent business people in British Columbia and Yukon,” said Laura Jones, senior vice-president research and Western Canada in making the announcement.
Kurl’s presence effectively scooped news of her arrival during what has been a hectic month, in which CFIB has celebrated its 40th anniversary, celebrates the Year of the Entrepreneur in B.C., and takes a member-based position on the HST referendum.
“It was a case of diving in at the deep end, but I wouldn’t have it any other way,” says Kurl.
She has more than a decade of journalism experience in British Columbia. She was the legislative reporter for /A News Vancouver Island, was previously associate producer of Global National News, and has been a contributing columnist for the Vancouver Sun.
She brings a strong sense of provincial political affairs, public policy development and an understanding of the many regions that make up our province.
