Yvon Godin (born May 12, 1955 in Bathurst, New Brunswick) is a Canadian politician. Godin is currently a New Democratic Party (NDP) Member of Parliament (MP) in the Canadian House of Commons, representing the riding of Acadie Bathurst since 1997. Previously, Godin was a labour representative for the United Steelworkers. He is the current Whip of the NDP caucus, and is the NDP critic of Official Languages, Employment Insurance, Intergovernmental Affairs and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency. In 2003, he supported Bill Blaikie''s campaign to lead the NDP. As federal MP, Godin had a strained relationship with former New Democratic Party of New Brunswick leader Elizabeth Weir. Following her resignation in 2005, however, there were rumours that Godin might resign his federal seat and run to replace her as provincial party leader at the party''s 2005 leadership convention. Ultimately, Godin declined to stand as a candidate, and Allison Brewer was elected NB NDP leader.
