Wayne Stetski appointed to be the NDP's Critic for National Parks

Kootenay Columbia’s new MP, Wayne Stetski, was appointed Critic for National Parks by New Democratic Party leader Tom Mulcair.
“I’m honoured to be appointed to the NDP shadow cabinet as the Critic for National Parks,” Stetski said in a statement released on Thursday, November 12. “Our experienced and united team is ready to get to work on behalf of Canadians as the progressive opposition. The Liberal government made a lot of commitments this campaign. We’re going to hold them to their promises.”
The statement said Stetski plans to ensure that Canada protects the natural environment for future generations and reverse the previous Conservative government’s changes to environmental protection laws. That work begins with updating Parks Canada’s national park system plan to focus on protecting the ecological integrity of our national parks, creating new parks to improve representation of natural regions, and improving ecological connectivity between national parks and other protected areas.
