HALIFAX - The only chairman the Nova Scotia Liquor Corp. has ever had is leaving the position this spring.
Peter McCreath, a former Conservative MP, will finish his term in April.
His appointment in 2001 by the then Conservative government sparked accusations of patronage by the opposition.
McCreath, 66, said Monday he told the minister responsible for the liquor corporation in the fall that he didn't want to return for another term.
The former Tory majority government changed the liquor commission to a Crown corporation in 2001 and wanted it to be more businesslike.
New Democrat and Liberal critics complained that five of seven appointees to the board were Tory supporters.
A Tory minority government, with Liberal support, re-appointed McCreath to the job in April 2007.
