My Statement on being appointed a second Parliamentary Secretary role, to the Minister of Democratic Institutions

I am honoured to have been asked by the Prime Minister to fulfill a second Parliamentary Secretary role, to the Minister of Democratic Institutions in addition to my current role as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Justice. I am grateful to Prime Minister Trudeau for expressing his confidence in me, and committed to supporting Minister Gould in ensuring that we continue to strengthen the openness and fairness of our public institutions, and Canadians’ trust and participation in our democratic process and the upcoming federal election. This is in conjunction with the important work I continue to do with the Minister of Justice to ensure respect for the Charter and compliance with the rule of law.

I look forward to working with both Ministers Lametti and Gould on their respective mandates.
