The return of David McGuinty

After resigning as the Liberal corner’s natural resources critic (as a result of his ill-received career advice to Conservative MPs from Alberta), David McGuinty has now been named the critic for Science and Technology, Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario and Federal Economic Development Initiative in Northern Ontario. (Note: Every Liberal MP, with the exception of Marc Garneau, who stepped down as House leader to run for the party leadership, has an official role of some kind.)

Ted Hsu becomes the natural resources critic (Marc Garneau had held the title on an interim basis).

Conservative MP Joan Crockatt thanked Mr. McGuinty yesterday for his assistance in getting her elected in Calgary Centre.
