Local MP Jamie Schmale was appointed today as shadow minister for Families, Children and Social Development by Conservative Party of Canada leader Erin O’Toole.
“I’m grateful to be able to serve the constituents of Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock, and all Canadians on this file,” said Schmale.
“We are in an unprecedented time in our nation’s history. Families are struggling, youth are underemployed and understandably there is anxiety about what the future may hold. It is imperative that we listen to what Canadians are saying as we address housing and rental affordability, the cost of raising children and take steps to make life more affordable for families.”
Prior to being named to this position MP Schmale served in the shadow cabinet as Shadow Minister for Crown-Indigenous Relations.
“Together, with the rest of the Conservative team, we will be holding this government to account,” added Schmale.
“Our families and children are the bedrock of our society and I will work hard every day on their behalf.”
