Congratulations Andrew Scheer!
Big congratulations to Andrew Scheer for winning the Conservative Party of Canada's leadership race tonight!
Scheer and his campaign team can be proud of the positive campaign they ran and the interesting policy ideas they put forward.
We would also like to extend a ‘thank you’ to the other 13 candidates who put their name forward. It’s easy to sit on the sidelines and grumble about the government, but it’s another thing to run for leader and spend countless hours crisscrossing the country, attending small gatherings, preparing for debates, being away from your family and all the other sacrifices required of a candidate.
Considering the Conservative Party of Canada now has over 259,000 members, and is energized coming out of its leadership race, Justin Trudeau and the Liberals should be concerned heading into the 2019 federal election – Scheer and the Conservatives are going to be a force to be reckoned with!
