Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke MP Randall Garrison has been appointed a prominent role in the NDP shadow cabinet.
Garrison was appointed as national defence and LGBTQ issues critic on Thursday by NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair.
“We have a lot of work cut out for us and we’re ready to get results for Canadians,” said Garrison.
“The NDP team in Ottawa is strong, experienced and will work hard to ensure the new government fulfills its promises for change.”
Garrison will also push for the NDP’s priorities, like setting firm targets for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, public healthcare and reforming the electoral system.
In the previous Parliament, Garrison held the critic’s role for public safety.
Victoria MP Murray Rankin was named the justice and attorney general critic.
