MP excited to be re-elected

Newly re-elected MP Nathan Cullen says he is looking forward to returning to Parliament and making sure the Conservatives live up to Canadians’ expectations.
He was in Ottawa last week meeting with NDP leader Jack Layton and the rest of the NDP caucus.
The NDP now has 29 MPs, and Mr. Cullen said they are expecting to have a lot of influence on the minority government.
“In the last Parliament, we were able to get a budget rewritten with only 19 members,” he said. “There’s no telling what we’ll be able to accomplish with more talented people on our team.”
Mr. Cullen is now back in the Skeena-Bulkley Valley riding. He returns to Ottawa Feb. 13 when MPs will be sworn in and their critic portfolios announced.
