this summer,the Northwest MP has been awarded Maclean's Best Orator award
as part of their review of the Parliamentarians of 2017

Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen has defended his title as the Best Orator on the Hill, with the Northwest MP receiving the accolades for the second year in a row when it comes to his gift of the craft of Parliamentary oratory.

In an article that notes Cullen is the Explainer-in-chief, Maclean's makes note of his abilities and how he has evolved to the status of the Hill's most articulate advocate of the political message.

Those that have seen (and heard) the MP in action across the riding won't be surprised that his ability to connect listeners to his message has once again been singled out for notice.

First elected to office in 2004, Mr. Cullen has had more than ample opportunity to polish his speaking style and hone his political points through numerous political events across the riding and beyond.
