MLA Hawranik announces resignation

  • Print

Gerald Hawranik, the Conservative MLA for Lac du Bonnet, submitted his resignation this afternoon.

Hawranik, first elected in a 2002 byelection, announced in February that he would not seek re-election this fall. At the time, he said he intended to remain in office until the Oct. 4 general election.

The Conservative Party issued a news release this afternoon stating that Morris MLA Mavis Taillieu would be replacing Hawranik as the party’s House Leader. The release also announced that Hawranik had resigned effective today.

In February, the Beausejour lawyer announced that he was selling his law practice and resigning his seat for personal reasons. His wife Pamela was appointed dean of the faculty of graduate studies at Athabasca University a couple of years ago, and the two have been commuting between Edmonton and Manitoba ever since. They have two grown daughters -- one in Edmonton and one in Dauphin -- and two young grandchildren.

"It's been difficult for the last couple of years," Hawranik said at the time.
