Rookie Cariboo-Prince George MP Todd Doherty remains in the Conservatives’ shadow cabinet.

New leader Andrew Scheer appointed his new shadow cabinet yesterday and Doherty was tagged as the Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, and the Asia-Pacific Gateway critic. Doherty was also in interim leader Rona Ambrose’s shadow cabinet.

“Thank you Andrew Scheer for your confidence and the honour to serve as shadow minister of Fisheries, Oceans and CDN Coast Guard and Asia Pacific,” Doherty tweeted after the announcement.

Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies MP Bob Zimmer was not named to the 35-member shadow cabinet. Both supported Scheer in the party’s leadership race.
