Representing you in Parliament

A nationally recognized legal expert and former UVic law professor, Murray Rankin serves as the New Democratic Party's critic for Justice and Attorney General and was elected vice-chair of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights

Alongside scrutinizing justice-related bills, the committee is studying ways to increase access to legal aid, resolve delays in the justice system, and encourage alternatives to incarceration to reduce the incarceration rate, particularly amongst the Indigenous population.

In the House of Commons, Mr. Rankin introduced a bill to tackle offshore tax havens and sponsored motions to strengthen public pensions, regulate harmful pesticides, and support ocean science research at Canadian universities.
