Christine Moore (born October 21, 1983) is a Canadian politician. On May 2, 2011, she was elected as the Member of Parliament for Abitibi—Témiscamingue for the New Democratic Party in Quebec during the 2011 Canadian federal election.[1] She defeated Bloc Québécois MP Marc Lemay, who had been holding the riding since 2004. Despite her anglophone-sounding name, Moore is a francophone; her English has a marked French accent.

Education and experience

Moore earned a Diploma of College Studies in Nursing from the Cégep de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue in 2008 and a B.Sc. in Nursing from the Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT) in 2010. She completed a one-month humanitarian internship in Senegal as part of her Nursing degree at UQAT in 2009, and she served with the Canadian Forces for over three years. She is also a member of Nurses Without Borders.

Federal politics

Moore finished a distant fourth as the NDP candidate in Abitibi—Témiscamingue in 2006 and 2008; both times, she came up short of the 10-percent threshold to have her campaign expenses refunded. However, on her third try in 2011, she overwhelmed Lemay by 9,500 votes.

On May 26, 2011, she was appointed the federal Official Opposition critic for military procurement. The key files Moore is responsible for include the purchase of F 35s, the modernization of various navy ships, and the replacement of search and rescue aircraft. Consequently, she works mostly on the Standing Committee on National Defence, the main forum for addressing these issues. She also assists Jack Harris with his duties as federal Official Opposition critic for National Defence.

During the 2011–2012 New Democratic Party leadership race, she threw her support behind Romeo Saganash.
