Announcing Jacqueline Romanow as Candidate and International Trade and Development Critic

WINNIPEG--The Green Party of Canada is pleased and proud to announce Jacqueline Romanow as candidate for Winnipeg Centre.  “We are thrilled to have such a brilliant and articulate woman as a candidate in this important riding,” said Green Leader Elizabeth May. “The people of Winnipeg Centre would be extremely well served to have Jacqueline Romanow representing them in Parliament.”

Ms. Romanow will also serve in the Green Party Shadow Cabinet as critic on International Trade and Development.  “Fair trade, green economics and appropriate regulation are all key to building our economy in this global world,” said Romanow. “I look forward to bringing my experience and vision to this portfolio.”

Just finishing a PhD specializing in International Relations from Queen's University, Ms. Romanow also holds a Master of Arts in Economics from the University of Manitoba and a Bachelor degree in English.  Currently an Assistant Professor in Aboriginal Governance at the University of Winnipeg, she is the recipient of the Indigenous Peoples and Globalization Research Grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.  Her research focuses on issues such as international Indigenous rights, human rights in global politics, and Aboriginal politics in Canada.

"I am very excited about representing the Green Party in Winnipeg Centre and looking forward to working in Shadow Cabinet. The International Trade and Development portfolio is crucial to Canada's short term and long term prosperity. It is all about building and supporting sustainable communities and the people that live within them, locally and globally."
