MP Jim Eglinski Named to New Committee
January 30, 2018
OTTAWA: As of January 29th, MP Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, has officially been named as a member of the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage (CHPC).
“I enjoyed the two studies we accomplished in the Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology,” stated MP Eglinski. “Though I will miss the study on broadband connectivity, I will keep up-to-date on its progress as it moves forward.”
MP Eglinski’s new committee studies the policies and programs of the Department of Canadian Heritage and the organizations within the Portfolio. These organizations are active in the fields of promoting culture, the arts, heritage, audiovisual, sport, official languages, citizenship and participation as well as Aboriginal, youth and sport initiatives.
Most recently, the CHPC completed hearings on the controversial motion, M-103, which called on the House of Commons to denounce islamophobia and to study how to reduce systemic racism and religious discrimination in Canada.
“I look forward to participating in conversations about Canadian culture, and representing the views of Yellowhead as we discuss citizenship, official languages, and heritage,” concluded MP Eglinski.
