Former cabinet minister Jim Prentice has been appointed to telecom giant BCE Inc.’s board of directors.
Thomas O'Neill, chairman of the parent company of Bell Canada, said Thursday that the former Conservative environment minister was invited to a seat on the board due to his “well-established reputation for insight and integrity.”
Mr. Prentice resigned from federal politics last November to take a senior position with CIBC as the bank's senior executive vice-president and vice-chairman.
Despite his departure from the federal political stage, there has long been speculation that Mr. Prentice could make a comeback and his name is frequently mentioned when Conservative leadership questions arise.Report Typo/Error
