29 Joy Macphail
CHAIR, ICBC NEW This former deputy premier and formidable inuencer has been out of the spotlight, relatively speaking, since she left politics in 2005 and focused on other ventures (like OUTTV, the station her husband, James Shavick, led for 10 years). But now the NDP is back in power, and so is the sharp Macphail. She’s chair of the board at ICBC, the province’s perpetually angst-ridden vehicleinsurance corporation, where changes are in the air. She was also put on the commission that studied mobility pricing for the region. And she’s chair at Adler University, an institution that focuses on mental health and social justice.
