Mark Strahl appointed Shadow Minister for Transport
CHILLIWACK- The Honourable Pierre Poilievre, Leader of Canada’s Conservative Party, and His Majesty’s Official Opposition has appointed Mark Strahl, MP for Chilliwack-Hope in a key role as Shadow Minister for Transport.
The Transport portfolio includes the rail, air, marine, port and interprovincial road transportation sectors. Strahl’s appointment comes at a critical time as the Trudeau government struggles to address various issues including jammed ports, dysfunctional airports, supply chain issues, and the aftermath of the disastrous ArriveCAN app.
“The failed policies of this NDP-Liberal coalition are costing Canadians who rely on the transportation sector. Their decisions have created world-worst wait times at our airports and have overwhelmed our supply chains, and their plans to triple the carbon tax will further drive up the cost of everything that needs to be transported across the country,” said Strahl.
“Under the leadership of Pierre Poilievre, Conservatives will fight for Canadians who rely on our transportation networks and can’t afford more Liberal mismanagement. We will remain focused on making life more affordable for Canadians so they can pay the rent, heat their homes and put food on their tables.”
