Ottawa, ON – Today, the Honourable Candice Bergen, Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada and the Official Opposition, released the following statement to announce changes to the Conservative Shadow Cabinet:

“The Liberals’ sky-high inflation is driving the cost of living up, with prices increasing by 6.8 per cent compared to a year ago. Millions of Canadians are feeling the pinch of inflation in their daily lives. Families and seniors are falling behind, while the Trudeau government and its NDP allies do nothing to give them a much-needed break.

“With Justin Trudeau’s cost-of-living crisis top of mind for many Canadians, Conservatives will focus on providing solutions for Canadian left behind by this NDP-Liberal government.

“That is why I have asked Dan Albas to serve as Conservative Shadow Minister for Finance. Dan will bring his years of experience and service to the people of Central Okanagan – Similkameen – Nicola to his new role. I am confident he will serve as Conservative Shadow Minister for Finance with dedication and excellence.

“Conservatives will always be the voice of Canadians struggling with the cost-of-living crisis. Dan and the entire Conservative team will continue to fight for common-sense solutions that provide relief to Canadians, leave more money in their pockets, and protects the money they earn.”
