    BCPC Convention report: Len Embree resigns - Construction Maintenance Allied Workers
    To the Provincial Council Executive Board
    Oct 10, 2006
    Dear Members,
    I have been struggling in making a decision on whether to return to the Council and I have decided not to. It has been quite a battle over these past nine years and over that period I have had the privilege of working with some good people and friends.

    We have come out from an International union into a Canadian Union of CMAW. We have a bit more to do and I would ask you to finish the task of what are (sic) members asked of us.

    I wish you well and thank you for the opportunity in representing BC Carpenters in this Province.
    Yours truly, Len Embree
