Julian named runner up in annual contest
Burnaby-New Westminster MP Peter Julian received the runner-up award for the Most Knowledgeable MP in the Maclean's magazine annual Parliamentarian of the Year Awards.
"I am honoured to receive these recognitions for the parliamentary session, but I am very conscious of the fact that the knowledge I am able to bring to Parliament is the result of representing Burnaby-New Westminster, Canada's most diverse and most extraordinary riding," Julian said in a press release.
Parliamentarians voted on the winners, and Prime Minister Stephen Harper took the top spot.
Julian was first elected in 2004 and has been re-elected three times. He is currently the opposition critic for energy and natural resources.
