Another NDP MP, Christine Moore, not seeking reelection

The Canadian Politician – Another NDP MP has announced that she will not be seeking reelection in October adding to the growing number of NDP MPs who have declared their intentions not to seek reelection. The 35-year-old MP and nurse, Christine Moore, representing the riding of Abitibi-Témiscamingue in Quebec indicated that she was quitting parliament, but will continue to canvas the course of progressive values through other means. She was quick to criticize the Trudeau government for maintaining the status quo and returning to the old ways of politics.

In 2018, two Liberal MPs were sacked from caucus after she accused them of harassment. The same year, Moore was suspended after she was embroiled in a sexual controversy where she was alleged to be involved with a Canadian Forces member in a non-consensual affair. She however insisted that she was in a romantic consensual relationship with the member and was later cleared by an internal NDP investigation and her parliamentary duties restored. Moore was first elected into parliament in 2011 and reelected in 2015. Her announcement brings to 11 the number of NDP MPs not seeking reelection. Three had resigned their positions in the course of their tenure bringing to 14 members who will not return in the fall.
