Future[edit]

The 2012 federal electoral boundaries redistribution concluded that the electoral boundaries of North Vancouver should be adjusted, and a modified electoral district of the same name will be contested in future elections.[3] The redefined North Vancouver loses the eastern portion of its current territory to the new district of Burnaby North—Seymour, while its western boundary with West Vancouver—Sunshine Coast—Sea to Sky Country is adjusted to correspond to the boundaries between the District of North Vancouver, West Vancouver and the Capilano Indian Reserve. These new boundaries will be legally defined in the 2013 representation order, which is likely to come into effect upon the call of the 42nd Canadian federal election, scheduled for October 2015. In the unlikely event an election is called prior to April 2014, the current electoral boundaries would remain in effect.[4]

During the 40th Parliament, he served as the Parliamentary Secretary to the President of the Treasury Board, and was a member of the Standing Committee on Public Accounts and the Standing Joint Committee on Scrutiny of Regulations.
