MNA Birnbaum to chair Liberal caucus of Montreal

Bravo to our D'Arcy McGee Liberal MNA David Birnbaum who received a well deserved promotion  from Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard.


Already the Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Education, Recreation and Sports and the Minister Responsible for Advanced Education,  Sebastien Proulx, Birnbaum has been named chair of the Liberal Caucus of Montreal.

This caucus includes all the Liberal members serving the ridings of the island of Montreal. Birnbaum succeeds the member for Jeanne-Mance-Viger, Filomena Rotiroti, who was appointed chair of the government caucus during the last cabinet shuffle.

"I am honored by the confidence my colleagues have placed in this important position, particularly in the lead-up to the upcoming elections," said Birnbaum. "Montreal is the engine of Quebec's development and its successes are victories for all Quebecers. I look forward to our group playing an active and visible role in promoting solutions to the key issues of concern to Montrealers. "

Birnbaum has acknowledged the constant and effective leadership of outgoing President Rotiroti over the past eight years. He indicated that he wanted to follow her example by working in partnership with the Minister of Municipal Affairs and the City of Montreal, Martin Coiteux, the Prime Minister and all government partners.

"Our Montreal caucus can and must be a vital force in supporting positive policies and initiatives for the Island of Montreal ," said Minister Coiteux."I am confident that Mr. Birnbaum will be a positive catalyst in his role as chair of our caucus."

The caucus is looking forward to meeting the new Mayor of Montreal, Valérie Plante in the coming weeks.

In my opinion Birnbaum should have gotten the new Ministry of Anglo Affairs portfolio, which went to Kathleen Weil.
