Yesterday I was re-elected as Chair of the Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates. This will be my second term serving as Chair as I was first elected to the position in the previous Parliament on October 8, 2020.

I am honoured to have been re-elected as the Chair of this committee which does important work in holding the government to account for their operational spending. During the last parliament, we produced a number of excellent studies and heard many hours of witness testimony, and I am grateful to have the chance to continue on in this regard.

I thank my colleagues from all parties for putting their faith in me as Chair, and I look forward to the many productive meetings that we will have as we move into the new year.
