Gladu fails to make Conservative Shadow Cabinet

MP elect Marilyn Gladu talks with supporters in Sarnia after the 2021 federal election.

The critics list was released after controversy over vaccine mandates

Sarnia-Lambton’s MP is no longer in the the Conservative Shadow Cabinet.

Leader Erin O’Toole unveiled his cabinet Tuesday and Marilyn Gladu was not among the 49 names. There are 121 members of the caucus.

Gladu has been silent since an interview with CTV’s Question Period where she talked about vaccine mandates and said the new Civil Liberties Cabinet where she compared the relative risk of COVID-19 to polio.

She’s since apologized for her remarks.

In September 2020, after the leadership race where she was a candidate, Gladu was named Shadow Minister for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario and critic of the President of the Queen’s Privy Council.
