Rood booted from shadow cabinet

Lianne Rood, MP for Lambton-Kent-Middlesex, has been replaced by Shannon Stubbs of Lakeland, Alberta, as the Conservative critic for rural economic development and rural broadband.

Stubbs was in the shadow cabinet when the party was led by Rona Ambrose.

Ben Lobb of Huron Bruce is shadow minister for digital government and special advisor on blockchain technologies and crypto assets.

Michael Barrett of Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Island and Rideau Lakes is shadow minister for health.

Marilyn Gladu of Sarnia-Lambton is associate shadow minister for international trade and supply chains.

Kyle Seeback of Dufferin-Caledon is shadow minister for environment and climate change.

Rachel Blainy of British Columbia is the NDP shadow minister for rural economic development. She represents North Island-Powell River.

I find it amazing that none of these six MPs represents a big-city riding. Farmers need not complain that they have no voices in Parliament.
