Prime Minister Announces the Appointment of Bob Dechert as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Justice
5 March 2010
Prime Minister Stephen Harper today announced the appointment of Bob Dechert, Member of Parliament for Mississauga-Erindale, as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Justice.
“Our government is serious about getting tough on crime. Since we were first elected, we have made it one of our highest priorities. There are still law and order measures that are urgently needed and Bob brings the right combination of skill and experience to help our Government continue its efforts to bring criminals to justice, keep Canadians safe and support the innocent victims of crime,” said the Prime Minister. “I am confident that Bob will be an excellent and indispensible member of our House leadership team.”
Parliamentary secretaries are responsible for assisting members of the Cabinet with their parliamentary responsibilities. As part of these responsibilities, parliamentary secretaries frequently represent their minister in parliamentary committees and work closely with members of Parliament in the House of Commons.

I like Bob,
He has been a tank running in 2004, 2006 and finally winning in 2008.
I have a world of respect for him not really getting into the entire issue surrounding Omar Alghabra and NDP candidate Mustafa Rizvi after he had won the riding, I thought it was a class act that he easily could have capitalized on.
