St. Albert – The Hon. Rona Ambrose, Leader of the Official Opposition and Interim Leader of the Conservative Party, announced today the Official Opposition Shadow Cabinet. With the announcement, Michael Cooper, MP for St. Albert-Edmonton, was named Deputy Critic for Justice.
“I believe the team we have assembled will be the strongest Official Opposition this country has ever seen,” said Ms. Ambrose. “I am proud to lead this team of talented and respected individuals from across Canada. Together, we will ask the Government the tough questions and hold them to account.”
Over 5.6 million Canadians voted for the Conservative Party on October 19, leading to one of the strongest oppositions to a majority government in Canadian history. The Conservatives will form a strong opposition and ensure hard-working Canadians and their families are protected and the country’s finances kept in check.
“I am honoured to have been asked by Ms. Ambrose to serve as the Deputy Critic for Justice. In this role, I will be a constructive critic of the Government to ensure that measures to keep our streets and communities safe are a priority.” Cooper continued: “I look forward to my new role and being an effective member of a strong Official Opposition team.”
