Jas Johal named to Fraser Health board

Former Global television reporter is also LNG promoter

Jas Johal has been appointed to the board of Fraser Health.

Former Global TV reporter Jas Johal, currently a spokesman for the BC LNG Alliance, is the newest director on the board of the Fraser Health Authority.

The one-year appointment was made by Health Minister Terry Lake, who cited Johal’s unique skill set and international and local media experience.

“His strong ties to the South Asian community and his cultural background will allow him to provide an important perspective to the board around health care needs of the people served in Fraser Health,” Lake said.

There are currently two South Asian directors serving on the nine-member Fraser Health board – Royal Bank executive Inde Sumal and former Surrey Coun. Barinder Rasode.

Johal, a Tsawwassen resident, replaces Sumal, whose term expires May 31.

Fraser Health directors are paid a base retainer of $7,500 a year and collect varying amounts – typically $14,000 to $20,000 in total – after meeting attendance fees are added and additional pay for chairing committees.
