NDP MPs Charlie Angus, Carol Hughes, and Rachel Blaney to Retire, Citing Family Time and Boundary Changes



NDP Members of Parliament (MPs) Charlie Angus, Carol Hughes, and Rachel Blaney have jointly announced their retirement from politics, citing the need for more family time and upcoming federal boundary changes.

The trio, with decades of combined service, made their intentions known, with Angus, a veteran of Parliament Hill, leading the decision. Angus expressed that it’s time to pass the baton to a new generation, as changes in electoral boundaries demand fresh energy in connecting with constituents.

The constituencies of the MPs are directly impacted by these boundary adjustments. Angus’s Timmins—James Bay riding in northern Ontario is set to expand, while Hughes’s Algoma—Manitoulin—Kapuskasing riding faces elimination in the upcoming federal election.

Similarly, Blaney, who serves as party whip, emphasized the need to prioritize family and remain closer to home. Their decisions, though difficult, underline the personal sacrifices made in public service.

Within the NDP, Leader Jagmeet Singh expressed gratitude for their dedication and contributions to the party over the years. The departure of these veteran MPs adds to the turnover within the political landscape.

Several other NDP members, including British Columbia MPs Randall Garrison and Richard Cannings, have previously announced their intentions not to seek re-election. The political environment is evolving rapidly, with movements seen both within the NDP and across party lines.

The Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) eyes opportunities in areas traditionally held by the NDP, emphasizing affordability and criticizing government policies such as the federal carbon pricing initiative.

The next federal election is scheduled to take place on or before October 20, 2025. The political shifts and retirements signal a period of change and realignment within the Canadian political sphere.

This report, by The Canadian Press, highlights the ongoing transformations and the impact on key political figures within the country.
