Kyle Seeback, Member of Parliament for Dufferin-Caledon, was named Shadow Minister for Environment and Climate Change, as part of the Conservative Shadow Cabinet for the first session of the 44th Parliament on February 22, 2022. “I’m both humbled and honoured to be accepting this new role,” said Mr. Seeback. “I want to thank our interim leader, Candice Bergen, for putting her faith and trust in me to hold the current Trudeau government accountable for their failed leadership on the environment and climate change. Canadians want to see a real plan of action, not more rhetoric. We can tackle climate change while protecting jobs and growing the economy.”
The 44th Parliament will resume sitting on February 28, 2022. Mr. Seeback previously served as Vice-Chair of the Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration. He also served as Deputy Shadow Minister for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, as part of the Conservative Shadow Cabinet for the first session of the 43rd Parliament under Andrew Scheer.
“We need to be working with the provinces to identify technological solutions to address climate change while investing in Canadians,” said Mr. Seeback. “The Trudeau government’s approach isn’t working. Canada needs an environmental plan that not only works for Canadians, but also respects the jurisdiction of the provinces to ensure provincial governments can stand behind it that will allow us to actually meet our climate change goals. I’m eager to tackle the difficult work that lies ahead in leading our country towards a greener, more prosperous future.”
