Biography

Peter Schiefke is a Canadian environmentalist and Liberal politician, who was elected to represent the riding of Vaudreuil—Soulanges in the House of Commons of Canada in the 2015 federal election. On December 2, 2015, he was appointed Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister for Youth affairs. Since December 2019, he has been Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change. In 2021, following the Liberal party's introduction of Bill C-32, an Act to amend the Official Languages Act, Schiefke began to make public statements about his belief that Québec is its own nation whose official language is exclusively French, thereby aligning himself with his party's position that English is not an official language in the nation of Québec and that it should not have equal status in the province.
