23 GEOFF MEGGS
CHIEF OF STAFF, B.C. PREMIER’S OFFICE PREVIOUSLY # 2,2017
As John Horgan’s chief of sta, Meggs is the most powerful voice in the premier’s ear. A key advantage he held in the NDP’S first year in oice was direct access to old friends at Vancouver City Hall—but that’s set to change this month, with the party he cofounded, Vision Vancouver, expected to take a hit at the polls. On a personal level, he also released his fourth book in April: Strange New Country: The Fraser River Salmon Strikes of 1900–1901 and the Birth of Modern British Columbia.
