B.C. has appointed a new superintendent of real estate to oversee the roll out of new regulations for the industry.
Micheal Noseworthy is a former lawyer from Newfoundland and Labrador who has served in a number of positions for the Yukon government, including as superintendent of real estate. The move comes after after a special advisory group concluded the industry had failed to effectively regulate itself.
Premier Christy Clark responded by promising to create a new position with expanded powers to oversee it.
