Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod has a new job.

In addition to her work representing her riding she will now take on a role in the Conservative opposition shadow cabinet, as Critic for Indigenous Affairs.


McLeod says she is just learning about her new responsibilities and believes one of the most prominent issues will be the future inquiry into murdered and missing indigenous women.

"We are going to be moving ahead with an inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women, so I think it is going to be important as a critic to ensure if we are moving ahead that this is an effective process and that this is something that results in important outcomes." McLeod told CFJC News. 

Other portfolios for BC Interior MPs include Central Okanagan-Similkameen-Nicola MP Dan Albas as Interprovincial Trade Critic and North Okanagan-Shuswap MP Mel Arnold as Deputy Critic for Fisheries, Oceans, and the Canadian Coast Guard.
