Lisa Marie Barron
Member of Parliament for Nanaimo—Ladysmith
Lisa Marie Barron was elected as the NDP Member of Parliament for Nanaimo-Ladysmith in 2021 and is committed to pushing Ottawa for solutions to the climate crisis, mental health and toxic substance emergency, and issues surrounding affordability. Lisa Marie believes there is no place for racism and discrimination in our country, and that Indigenous communities deserve true reconciliation.
Her designation as the NDP Critic for Fisheries, Oceans, and the Canadian Coast Guard is a role Lisa Marie takes very seriously. Being born on the east coast, and raising her children on the west coast, she has a deep appreciation for coastal communities and the marine ecosystems that surround them.
As Deputy-Critic for Mental Health and Addictions, Lisa Marie continues to apply her previous front line experience in mental health and addictions to her role. With more and more people struggling to get by and unable to access head to toe healthcare, we need a federal government that prioritizes people over the profits of the few.
Lisa Marie is proud to share all the wonderful things Nanaimo-Ladysmith has to offer, but also does not turn a blind-eye to the issues facing her constituents and Canadians. We may face challenges, but she trusts we can build a better future together.
