MP Nathan Cullen moving on to finance critic role

Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen is now the finance critic for the federal NDP.

Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen has moved from House Leader in Tom Mulcair’s NDP shadow cabinet to now being the NDP finance critic.

“I’m honoured and incredibly excited to take on this new assignment,” said Cullen in a news release. “We’ve seen the Conservative government take a Bay Street perspective on managing Canada’s economy for too long, giving reckless tax cuts to industries that don’t need them, and leaving Canadian families to pick up the slack.”

Cullen said he’ll bring a main street perspective to his work as finance critic, with an emphasis on helping small business grow and supporting initiatives to make life more affordable for Canadian families.
