VANCOUVER — The NDP government has withdrawn the appointments of three ICBC board members as the public insurer grapples with rising costs and significant financial issues.

Attorney General David Eby, the minister responsible for ICBC, says Catherine Boivie, William Davidson and Ronald Olynyk, who's from Kamloops, have had their appointments to the board rescinded.

Trade union activist Bonnie Pearson, investment consultant Jeremy Bell and former TransLink CEO Doug Allen have been named to the board in their place.

In another shakeup yesterday, the NDP fired Brent Mullins as chair of the BC Labour Relations Board and Employment Standards Tribunal and says vice-chair Jaquie de Aguayo will fill in on an interim basis until a permanent replacement is found.
