Cullen named Most Knowlegeable MP

Skeena — Bulkey Valley MP Nathan Cullen was recently named 2014's Most Knowledgeable Parliamentarian.

Skeena — Bulkey Valley MP Nathan Cullen was recently named 2014’s Most Knowledgeable Parliamentarian at an event hosted by Maclean’s magazine.

“I’m at a bit of a loss for words,” Cullen said.

“There are a lot of amazing MPs in the House; to be singled out in this way by my colleagues is truly an honour.”

The Maclean’s Parliamentarians of the Year are selected by Members of Parliament, with Cullen being chosen from 308 MPs to receive the award. Cullen accepted the award at an event in Ottawa on Nov. 18.

Parliamentarians of the Year awards recognize MPs in seven areas of achievement: hardest working, best constituency representative, most collegial, most knowledgeable, rising star, best opator and parliamentarian of the year.

In a write-up by Maclean’s, Cullen credited the Skeena — Bulkey Valley riding for “giving him a perspective beyond the preoccupations of the Ottawa bubble”.

“The effort has been around being an interpreter and translating either obscure procedural data or some market statistics or economic factors into something that more people can understand. It’s the general job of a politician to interpret these things that go on in the House for people,” Cullen said in the Maclean’s piece.
