Anderson garners new critic portfolio for the federal opposition

 David Anderson, MP for Cypress Hills Grasslands has been appointed Official Opposition Critic for Agriculture and Agri-food by Interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose.

“I am honoured to be appointed as the Conservative agriculture critic. I am looking forward to working with my colleagues to hold this Liberal government and the minister to account on issues facing farmers in Cypress Hills-Grasslands and across the country. Stakeholders have been very disappointed that this government has already failed them. This has been highlighted by the Liberals’ inability to address international trade issues that are so critical to our producers’ success.”
Anderson brings life long experience as a farmer, his 16 years in Parliament and former position of Parliamentary Secretary for the Canadian Wheat Board to the job.
In appointing Anderson, Ambrose said that he “has the energy and experience to ensure the concerns of Canadian producers are heard.”

Anderson will continue his role as Critic for International Human Rights and Religious Freedom.
“Strong Canadian agriculture means a stronger Canada. ‎Our challenge is to get this government to understand that,” concluded Anderson.
