He’s also been reappointed to the role of critic for Asia-Pacific Gateway – a role he previously held from 2015-2016. For the full list click here.

Doherty said he’s “honoured” to take on the roles on behalf of his constituents and couldn’t resist taking a shot at the prime minister.

“Justin Trudeau claims the best of intentions, but his policies hurt the very people they are supposed to help. As we prepare for a busy fall session, I am confident that our team will share our positive Conservative vision while standing up to Liberal overspending and higher costs passed onto businesses, families and individuals.”

And while Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies Conservative MP Bob Zimmer wasn’t assigned a role in the new Shadow Cabinet, he was appointed chair of the Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics.

The House of Commons returns Sept. 18.
