The province has named a board of directors to oversee the operations of the new Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corp.

Tannis Mindell, former secretary to Treasury Board, has been appointed as chairwoman of the new corporation, while Leslie Turnbull, a former Manitoba Hydro board member and partner with Viewpoints Research, has been appointed vice-chair.

Dave Chomiak, minister responsible for gaming and the lead minister on the merger of the Manitoba Liquor Control Commission and Manitoba Lotteries Corp., announced the appointments this morning.

The merger of the two Crown corporations, announced in the April 17 provincial budget, is designed to save on administrative costs.
