QUEEN’S PARK — Huron-Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson has been appointed the Official Opposition’s International Trade Critic, as well as Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation Critic.
“I’m looking forward to taking on the challenges and opportunities that these two portfolios provide for our province,” said Thompson.
“For the last decade, the bad policies, waste and mismanagement of this Liberal government have discouraged businesses and communities from investing and growing in Ontario. I’m looking forward to continuing to share our message that under a PC government, there will be an Ontario advantage, where once again our province will become a place to prosper and do business.”
As part of her new role, Thompson is responsible for building a more prominent focus on international trade and identifying opportunities for Ontario businesses to engage in new markets, all the while fostering strong relations with neighbouring jurisdictions.
In her role as Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation Critic, Thompson will work closely with Ontario’s indigenous communities to understand their concerns and identify opportunities to work better together.
Thompson will continue to serve as a member of the standing committee on general government, as well as the Ontario representative to the Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians for Canada Region.
“Huron-Bruce is central to everything I undertake in the legislature. Ensuring that our voices, concerns and interests are well represented will always be my primary focus,” Thompson said.
