NDP announces changes to shadow cabinet

OTTAWA – Today, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh announced changes to the strong NDP team in the House of Commons.

Peter Julian (New Westminster—Burnaby) will once again be taking on the role of House Leader. Murray Rankin (Victoria), who had stepped in as House Leader a year ago, will be returning to his previous role as the NDP's Justice Critic, while Alistair MacGregor (Cowichan-Malahat-Langford) will continue his excellent work on the Justice file as the NDP's Deputy Justice Critic.

Niki Ashton (Churchill—Keewatinook) will also be returning to her role as NDP Critic for Jobs, Employment and Workforce Development, to fight against the growth of precarious work in Canada, and Charlie Angus (Timmins—James Bay) will become the first NDP Critic for Indigenous and Northern Affairs (Youth).

"I am happy to announce these changes to our incredible team of MPs in the House of Commons," said NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh. “Canadians need representatives in Ottawa that put people’s interests ahead of those of the wealthy and well-connected – and that’s exactly what we have in our talented shadow cabinet.”
