Area MP Jamie Schmale has earned a spot in the Conservative Shadow Cabinet.
Schmale has been named the Shadow Minister for Crown-Indigenous Relations.
“It is an honor to have been named the Shadow Minster for Crown-Indigenous Relations. The goal is to reflect the growing strength of the Conservative team and our commitment to work for Canadians from coast to coast,” Schmale said in a media release.
“I believe that it is time to work together create a positive future for Indigenous youth, including increasing economic and education opportunities. We must support those who are affected by their relationship with the Crown, and work to bring forward policies that make real and measurable improvements in the lives of Indigenous Peoples of Canada,” said Schmale.
During the last term, Schmale served as Shadow Minister for Northern Ontario and Deputy Shadow Minister for Natural Resources.
