Michael Barrett, Member of Parliament for Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes, was appointed to serve as Conservative Shadow Minister for Ethics and Accountable Government under the leadership of the Hon. Pierre Poilievre.
“I am honoured to continue serving our community as Conservative Shadow Minister for Ethics and Accountable Government and I will fight for all the hardworking, honest Canadians who deserve transparency, respect, and common sense from the Liberal government on how their taxpayer money is spent by ensuring we are holding Prime Minister Trudeau and his government to account,” said Mr. Barrett.
MP Barrett was named Shadow Minister for Ethics and Accountable Government by the Leader of His Majesty’s Loyal Opposition, the Hon. Pierre Poilievre on October 12, 2022. MP Barrett has previously served in this role and worked with parliamentarians to expose Prime Minister Trudeau’s WE Charity scandal involving taxpayer contracts for political insiders and stopped a half-billion dollars from being unethically paid out. He also worked with MPs to demand accountability for the SNC-Lavalin scandal involving Prime Minister Trudeau’s political interference in Canada’s justice system.
