Niki Ashton is a second time MP (not a first-time MP) and she is not Aboriginal. I believe she was the youngest MP in the last Parliament (or at least one of the youngest) and now is a seasoned MP to guide all the young people brought in from Quebec. Her father, Steve Ashton, has been a cabinet minister for many years in the Manitoba Legislature and her mother is Greek. Niki's can speak French, Greek and Spanish (note in the debate she said she campaigned in five languages).
