Arthur Daniel Miller (born December 24, 1944) is a Canadian politician. He served as interim leader of the New Democratic Party of British Columbia and served as the 32nd Premier of British Columbia for six months from August 25, 1999 to February 24, 2000, following the resignation of Glen Clark.
First elected to the BC legislature in the 1986 election, he served in the cabinets of Premiers Mike Harcourt and Glen Clark under a variety of ministries, including Minister of Forests and Minister for Energy and Mines. In 1992, he became deputy premier.
An uncontroversial and moderate politician, Miller was elected interim leader of the BC NDP by an emergency meeting of the provincial caucus following the sudden resignation of Premier Clark on August 25, 1999. He served as premier until Ujjal Dosanjh was elected party leader and thus premier by a formal party convention on February 24, 2000. He did not run for re-election in the 2001 election.
In early 2005, Miller was hired by the BC Government as an advisor for the province's offshore oil and gas development team, and has also worked for a major pipeline company and a forest company since leaving office.
