"I'm looking forward to taking on the challenges and opportunities that these two portfolios provide for our province," said Thompson.   "For the last decade, the bad policies, waste and mismanagement of this Liberal government have discouraged businesses and communities from investing and growing in Ontario. I'm looking forward to continuing to share our message that under a PC government, there will be an Ontario advantage, where once again our province will become a place to prosper and do business."

As part of her new role, Thompson is responsible for building a more prominent focus on international trade and identifying opportunities for Ontario businesses to engage in new markets, all the while fostering strong relations with neighbouring jurisdictions.

The Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation Critic appointment is also an honour for Thompson. In this role, she will work closely with Ontario's indigenous communities in order to understand their concerns and identify opportunities to work better together.

Along with her new duties, Thompson will continue to serve as a member of the Standing Committee on General Government, as well as the Ontario Representative to the Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians for Canada Region. Her top priority however, remains representing the interests of residents in Huron-Bruce.  

"Huron-Bruce is central to everything I undertake in the legislature. Ensuring that our voices, concerns and interests are well represented will always be my primary focus," concluded Thompson.
