Great Things Are In Store For Our Country!
June 14, 2017
On May 27th, the Conservative Party of Canada elected my Saskatchewan colleague, Andrew Scheer, as its leader. I fully support Andrew’s leadership, and I look forward to working with him as a Member of Canada’s Official Opposition as we prepare for the next federal election. Our Conservative caucus is united behind Andrew, and I have the utmost confidence in his leadership and capability to beat the Trudeau Liberals in 2019.
In Andrew, the Conservative Party elected a young man with a passion for people, policy and hard work. He enjoys support from every region of the country. Citizens from British Columbia to Nunavut to Newfoundland can count on Andrew and the Conservative Party to work hard for them, no matter where they live.
During his four years as Speaker of the House of Commons, Andrew was the steward of our country’s most important democratic institution. No one will be able to defend it better as the Trudeau Liberals routinely seek to diminish its importance in Canada’s legislative process.
I am reminded of Canada’s last Prime Minister from Saskatchewan, John G. Diefenbaker, who was as formidable a personality as he was a leader.I have no doubt that Andrew will live up to ‘The Chief’s’ legacy, as he works for the everyday Canadians who make up our truly great country. As he said to our caucus in his first speech to us a leader, “The Liberals can take their cues from the cocktail circuit. We will take ours from the minivans, from the soccer fields, from the legion halls and the grocery stores.”
My Conservative colleagues and I stand confidently and united behind Andrew Scheer as our new leader. I know there are some great things in store for both our party and our country in the years to come!
