UPDATE: We can now confirm that Jesse Postnikoff will be assuming the role as campaign manager after receiving this statement from Jim Postnikoff:

“Yesterday I accepted the resignation of my campaign manager, Meagan Salekin. Meagan will step away from the campaign for personal reasons. Meagan is an extremely talented individual, who has done a tremendous job on my behalf and I hate to lose her. Meagan remains a supporter of the party and the campaign. In her absence my new campaign manager Jesse Postnikoff will be assuming the role as we move forward in the campaign for keeping B.C. strong.”

“I definitely have a new campaign manager and we’re preparing a  statement shortly to send out to everybody,” said Postnikoff.
