Cullen Named Parliamentarian of Year by Macleans

He's twice been voted parliament's best orator -- and once its most knowledgeable MP by his colleagues -- but now, Nathan Cullen has earned Maclean's Magazine's top prize.

The Skeena-Bulkley Valley New Democrat has been voted Parliamentarian of the Year, in the magazine's annual poll of MP's across party lines.

Cullen's riding is the largest by area in BC, and one of the farthest away from Ottawa, and he joked to the magazine that maybe jet lag is beneficial in help him craft his speeches in the House.
