Stubbs back as shadow natural resources critic

With Pierre Poilievre at the helm of the Conservative Party, the new opposition leader has rolled out a shadow cabinet which sees Lakeland MP Shannon Stubbs regaining the file of natural resources.

Stubbs last kept watch as the natural resources critic back in 2019 under Andrew Scheer.

The Lakeland representative who has twice won Maclean’s Parliamentarian of the Year award for MP that best represents constituents says,”Canada’s wealth of energy, mineral, and forestry development and expertise is central to our country’s future and bestows
Canada a unique role in the world on energy security as an environmentally responsible,
democratic, and transparent producer.”

Stubbs adds, “The natural resources sector can sustain hundreds of thousands of jobs and contribute billions towards the Canadian economy.”

Referencing Bill C-69 and citing the Alberta Court of Appeal ruling that it was unconstitutional, Stubbs says, “the federal government refuses to eliminate it, even when all provinces are united in opposition to it and are appealing in the Supreme Court.”

Having served in the role before, Stubbs in accepting the mantle once again concludes,”I will continue to champion and bust myths about the world class work of the employees, suppliers, and producers in responsible oil and gas development.”

In the 2019 federal elections Stubbs won about 84 per cent of the vote in the Lakeland riding; a record for a female candidate.
