Victoria MP Murray Rankin is taking on a new role as the federal NDP’s British Columbia caucus chair.

Rankin was voted into the position by his NDP colleagues in Ottawa last week.

“I am so honoured to have the confidence of this talented group of B.C. New Democrat MPs,” Rankin said in a statement. “As caucus chair, I hope to play an important role leading into the 2015 election.”

Rankin was first elected in a byelection in November 2012. He also serves as Official Opposition critic for pensions and national revenue, and he continues to advocate for for the expansion of public pensions and retirement security. Rankin has also made headlines for his outspoken criticism of what he calls Conservative inaction on tax evasion and the use of tax havens.
