Jagmeet Singh scrums with media following a speech at the BC NDP convention on Saturday.

While attending the biennial BC NDP convention, Federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh announced today that two BC MPs would be appointed to his shadow cabinet.

Peter Julian (New Westminster—Burnaby) will be appointed as NDP House Leader, and Rachel Blaney (North Island—Powell River) will be appointed as Party Whip.

“Peter is among the most experienced and committed caucus members we have, and Rachel has earned the respect of people in and out of our caucus,” said Singh. “I will be relying on both of them in these important leadership roles as New Democrats work to deliver for Canadians in this minority parliament.”

Blaney previously served as Deputy Whip in the previous parliament, while Julian returns to the position of House Leader for the fifth time.

The NDP says that more shadow cabinet announcements will be made in coming days.
