Nanaimo-Cowichan MP Jean Crowder will not be running in the next federal election, but she will be heavily involved.
NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair has picked Crowder to co-chair the committee that will run the party’s campaign strategy for 2015.
Crowder says the added responsibility, however, will not take away from her duties in the riding.
The next federal election is expected in October of 2015.
