Ida Chong has replaced Moira Stilwell as B.C.'s minister of regional economic and skills development.
Chong, the B.C. Liberal MLA for Oak Bay-Gordon Head, will continue to serve as minister of science and universities.
News of the appointment comes the same day that anti-HST campaigners launched their first recall effort, which targets Chong.
Fight HST says that, if its recall application is approved by Elections B.C., canvassers will need to gather 18,000 signatures to unseat the MLA.
Stilwell resigned her post to seek the leadership of the B.C. Liberal Party.
