Area MP Jamie Schmale has once again been named to the Conservative shadow cabinet.
The representative for Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock will serve as the shadow minister for Indigenous Services.
“This presents an opportunity to expand on the experience I gained while in Crown-Indigenous Relations,” Schmale said.
“The Liberal government has botched its promise to provide clean drinking water to Indigenous communities and has failed on its duty to provide adequate healthcare and housing for Indigenous families and children. They are silent on the calls from Indigenous leaders to address public safety issues on reserves through increased Indigenous led restorative justice measures and increased powers for First Nations policing services. I look forward to working with Indigenous leaders and communities to address these outstanding issues with the Liberal government.”
