New Westminster-Coquitlam NDP MP Fin Donnelly has been appointed Western Economic Diversification critic for Canada's official Opposition.

Donnelly, who will continue to serve as Fisheries and Oceans standing committe critic for Western Candaa, said he was excited about his new role. Prior to the announcement he held a forum with small business concerning credit card processing fees.

"If we want to remain competitive, we must invest in our industries and businesses and provide them with the tools to compete in a global market," he said in a press release. "Some measures are simple, like regulating inflated processing fees."
