Ottawa, ON – Bob Zimmer has a new role in Ottawa.

The Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies Conservative MP has been elected vice-chair of the Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities.

The committee studies employment, labour, income security, skills development and disability issues as well as programs administered by Employment and Social Development Canada.

“I am honoured to have been elected vice-chair of this important committee,” said Zimmer. “I look forward to examining the issues that touch the lives of all Canadians and to continue to provide a voice of reason for Canadian taxpayers.”

The committee will be chaired by Liberal MP Brian May. NDP MP Niki Ashton is the second vice-chair.

Zimmer is also the Conservative’s deputy critic for Families, Children and Social Development, chair of the BC/Yukon Conservative Caucus, chair of the National Prayer Breakfast, and co-chair of the All-Party Outdoors Caucus.


I called you out Zim….and ya NO what I am talking bout…These blinded sheeppl here…can’t see the trees for the forest…christian conservaw#*@#.

“National Prayer Breakfast”

As they say, on a wing and a prayer and he is the chair. Figures.

    I read that, scratched my head and had to look it up. Wow is all I can say. In public at least.

    This god dude has caused nothing but trouble.

    Each year, the National Prayer Breakfast and Leadership Dinner draw people of different ideologies and expressions of worship under the common goal of growing in faith and praying for Canada. This year’s breakfast marked 50 years of Parliamentarians coming together in the Spirit of Christ to pray. This was also the first year that Bob Zimmer, Member of Parliament for Prince George-Peace River, chaired the event, under the theme, “50 Years of Making a Difference.”

    This is the same guy with a private members bill against the UN anti human trafficking and gun smuggling clause . How very Christian of him . Did it pass ? Did he help Canadian guns getting to Yemen ? How is it that human trafficking and gun smuggling became a Christian thing ?

Here’s the article about Zimmer’s bill, including his response to the comments: previous article.
