|Member of the Canadian Parliament
for Winnipeg South Centre
|Preceded by||Anita Neville|
Joyce Bateman is a Canadian politician, who was elected to the Canadian House of Commons in the 2011 election. She represents the electoral district of Winnipeg South Centre as a member of the Conservative Party.
Prior to her election to Parliament, Bateman was a trustee on the Winnipeg School Board, and was a longtime member of the Liberal Party. She stated that she chose to switch parties and run as a Conservative because of the Liberal Party's fiscal plan, which she called "reckless".
Bateman announced $860 thousand for the Composites Innovation Centre in Winnipeg to continue research looking for alternatives to plastic and fibreglass, such as wheat, hemp and flax fibres combined with resins.
