Zann Joins New China Relations Committee
The Member of Parliament for Cumberland-Colchester has been appointed to a new committee of the House of Commons.
Lenore Zann has been named to the Special Committee on China-Canada Relations. It marks Zann’s first assignment since her election to parliament.
The new committee will conduct hearings to review all aspects of the Canada–China relationship, including, but not limited to, consular, economic, legal, security and diplomatic relations.
Zann says, “I am honoured to have been asked to serve on this important committee - especially at this time in our history when diplomacy and mutual respect are more important than ever.”
The MP added, “This is a significant time in relations between China and Canada, with several pressing issues including the detention of Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor. I’m sure I speak for all Canadians when I say, we want them back as soon as possible.”
The committee has six government members, four from the official opposition, one from the Bloc Québécois and one from the NDP. The first meeting is set for next Monday.
