Ambrose Highlighted For Hard Work


It’s been just a year since the federal election shuffled the composition of the House of Commons dramatically. But Ambrose points to concrete, incremental victories for her party in areas such as pipeline approvals, pushback on a job tax in the high-tech sector and the Tories’ insistence on a referendum on electoral reform—an esoteric topic, she admits, but a crucial one to Canadian democracy—as signs they’re getting the job done. “The Opposition has an incredibly important role to play, and the government has an equally important role to play,” she says. “If we both do those jobs well, we have a functioning democracy.”
