Chong appointed to ‘shadow cabinet’

FERGUS - Wellington-Halton Hills MP Michael Chong has been appointed to the official Opposition’s “shadow cabinet.”

Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer announced on Aug. 30 that Chong will serve as the critic on infrastructure, communities and urban affairs.

“I’m excited to take on this new role, and I’m proud to be working alongside an experienced team that will continue to hold the government to account on behalf of all Canadians,” said Chong.

“I look forward to building a stronger Conservative Party, as well as building a stronger Canada for everyone.”

Chong grew up in Fergus and lives on a Centre Wellington farm with his wife Carrie and their three sons. He was first elected to the House of Commons in 2004 as the Member of Parliament for Wellington-Halton Hills. He has served as Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs and Minister for Sport, as well as President of the Queen’s Privy Council for Canada.

In May, Chong finished fifth out of 13 candidates vying for the leadership of the Conservative Party.
