MP Bob Zimmer named as Official Opposition Deputy Critic for Families, Children and Social Development

OTTAWA – The Hon. Rona Ambrose, Leader of the Official Opposition and Interim Leader of the Conservative Party, announced today the Official Opposition Shadow Cabinet. With the announcement, Bob Zimmer, Member of Parliament for Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies, was named Deputy Critic for Families, Children and Social Development.
“I believe the team we have assembled will be the strongest Official Oppositions this country has ever seen,” said Ms. Ambrose. “I am proud to lead this team of talented and respected individuals from across Canada. Together, we will ask the Government the tough questions and hold them to account.”

Over 5.6 million Canadians voted for the Conservative Party on October 19, leading to one of the strongest oppositions to a majority government in Canadian history. The Conservatives will form a strong opposition and ensure hard-working Canadians and their families are protected and the country’s finances kept in check.

“I am honoured to have been asked to serve in the Shadow Cabinet for the Official Opposition as Deputy Critic for Families, Children and Social Development. I look forward to working hard in this new role and being an effective and productive member of such a dynamic team,” said Mr. Zimmer.
