Port Moody-Coquitlam NDP MLA given key critic role
Port Moody-Coquitlam NDP MLA Joe Trasolini has been appointed opposition critic for housing, construction and business investment, the party announced Wednesday.
NDP leader Adrian Dix said given Trasolini's business background, he is a good fit for the position. As the critic, the former Port Moody mayor will be responsible for dialoguing with the business community and growing investment opportunities in the province.
The NDP's Gwen O'Mahony, who was also chosen in the April byelection to represent Chilliwack-Hope, was appointed critic for skills training and deputy advanced education.
"Our team has been performing very well, holding the Liberals to account and making the case for positive change in B.C.," Dix said in a press release. "With Gwen O'Mahony and Joe Trasolini now bringing new perspectives and experience to our caucus, I wanted to make some changes to our critic line-up that will give them roles in making the case for change."
