Opposition statement on new federal Cabinet
CHARLOTTETOWN - Opposition Leader Jamie Fox today issued the following statement following the appointment of the new federal Cabinet:
“On behalf of the Official Opposition I want to congratulate Lawrence MacAulay on his appointment as Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food. Agriculture is a major industry in our province so we’re encouraged to see an Islander holding this important post.
As Prince Edward Island’s representative in the federal government there are many issues that will require cooperation between all levels of government to see real progress made over the next few years. Issues like agriculture, transportation, energy and infrastructure, the fishery, economic growth, health care and housing to name only a few. We look forward to working with Minister MacAulay to advance the Island’s interests.”
