Doherty named Conservatives’ Deputy Critic of Indigenous Affairs and Asia Pacific Gateway

The federal Conservative Party has announced its shadow cabinet and two local MP’s have landed positions.
Cariboo-Prince George MP Todd Doherty has been named Deputy Critic of Indigenous Affairs. He will work on the portfolio with nearby Kamloops -Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy Mcleod.
“I already have a great relationship with Cathy and over the past year I’ve had the chance to meet her and talk with her quite a bit,” Doherty said.
“For me, and I think Cathy shares the same view, it’s a new day and a new tone that we are setting as we move forward.”
Doherty called the Cariboo–Prince George and Kamloops-Cariboo ridings “ground zero” when it comes to indigenous affairs.

He was also named Critic of the Asia Pacific Gateway, a file that looks at trade, transport, and infrastructure investment in the western provinces.

“It’s really exciting for myself to be a part of this because it’s something that I know very well, in terms of marketing our region, province, and nations,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to it.”

Doherty says he was a part of Asia Pacific Gateway trade missions from 2008-2011 and participated in several industry panels.
