[quote=“TheNorthernView”]The federal NDP announced their new shadow cabinet positions this morning, and while most of the party’s veteran MPs received positions as ministry critics, one MP was curiously missing from the list of appointments: the MP for Skeena-Bulkley Valley, Nathan Cullen.
Instead, Cullen has been appointed as the chair of the Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics; more commonly known as the “Ethics Committee.”

Be interesting to hear what NDP supporters think of this development, as much as Mr. Cullen may want to make this sound like a good thing, it does seem that he’s going to have less of a presence in Ottawa for the next while. Offers up an opening in the debate over how we vote in elections, especially in the wake of the debate recently over how best to vote in the riding.[/quote]
A brave face is needed indeed to swallow this bitter pill. Everyone knows Mary Dawson, right? Mary, you know, she’s been holding this position for quite some time and has done lots and lots of real important things. Like…well, she is a nice person.
