Prince George, B.C. – Cariboo-Prince George Conservative MP Todd Doherty is about to become even busier.

Today he was appointed his party’s Official Opposition Critic for Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard.20141213_223855_resized

This is in addition to his current role as Critic for Asia-Pacific Gateway. Conservative Party leader Rona Ambrose is confident Doherty will provide a strong voice on both files.

“Todd Doherty has been an effective MP from British Columbia and will hold the Liberals to account on the Fisheries and Coast Guard files, including the appearance of conflict of interest by the Minister,” she said.

“I am honoured to once again have the opportunity to not only represent the constituents of Cariboo-Prince George, but to serve as critic in these vital roles,” responded Doherty. “I look forward to these new responsibilities, and the chance to serve as an effective member of our Conservative team.”


The cons screwed federal fisheries when they were in power and now this.

    Don’t worry, the Cons are only the opposition! They really can’t screw up anything at this time! They do the usual bleating that is expected from an opposition. The only way to get real effective representation is when an MP in the riding is part of the governing party!

      Exactly PG ,but it does say a great deal about the choices that Rona is making . What makes Toddd qualified to even have an opinion about the coast guard or fisheries ? Seagrass roots ? I guess she couldn’t find anyone in Halifax to step on her ship , EH ?

They made him responsible to get the donuts and coffee for the party caucuses? /s

Perhaps the Liberal or NDP representatives from the Prince George riding could do a better job. ooops I forgot they lost the election in this area.

    No pal , you lost the election .

      Didn”t even know Palopu ran in the election. Congrats on the nomination mate

    Ouch! LOL.

That critic of coast guard and fisheries is going to pay dividends to the caribou in spades . A trout for every lake should be the mantra . I can hardly wait . Unbelievable.

I will continue to be MP (mr. potato head) Doherty’s biggest critic.

I am sure the Liberals will give him a lot to criticize. Since their strength is buffoonery, hyperbole, naivety, and immaturity .

Buffoonery, hyperbole, naivety and immaturity. Palopu….obviously you have been in meetings with DOHerty and seen him in action.
