FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ottawa, ON – Matt Jeneroux, the Member of Parliament for Edmonton Riverbend, issues the following statement after being named to the role of Associate Shadow Minister for Infrastructure and Communities in the Official Opposition Shadow Cabinet:
“I’m pleased to be renamed to the Shadow Cabinet and continue working on the infrastructure file. We began a lot of important work on this file in the previous Parliament and I’m happy to continue to build on that work.
“Infrastructure impacts all Canadians on a daily basis. This government promised an ambitious, $188 billion infrastructure plan in 2015, but reports by the Parliamentary Budget Officer have repeatedly found the government has failed to achieve a lot of their goals. As a result, communities aren’t receiving their much-needed infrastructure.
“I will continue to work to hold the government to account and ensure infrastructure remains a top priority for the government.”
