VICTORIA – North Island MLA Claire Trevena has been named to a major role in the shadow cabinet of the new NDP leader, Adrian Dix.  She will be the critic for the Minister of Children and Family Development

The new leader of the Official Opposition, Adrian Dix, said his shadow cabinet will deliver for British Columbians, inside and outside the legislature.

“With its collective expertise and energy, our team will present a clear contrast to a B.C. Liberal government that is out of ideas and out of touch. We will present concrete proposals on the economy, public health care, public education, the environment and social justice that address the needs of working families and communities,” said Dix in a press release.

“I am very pleased to be taking this on,” said Trevena. “The BC Liberal government has neglected the most vulnerable families for a decade and I look forward to challenging their record,” said Trevena.

Trevena, who was elected Assistant Deputy Speaker after the 2009 provincial election said she will be offering solutions for the many children and families who need support. She looks forward to promoting a plan for affordable accessible child care, correcting the what they see as serious flaws in the child welfare system, to meeting the needs of families of children with special needs.
