Conservatives nominate four candidates for upcoming by-elections
After a weekend of nomination meetings, the list of Conservative candidates for the four by-elections has now been finalized. In Battlefords-Lloydminster, Rosemarie Falk has been nominated to represent the party. In South Surrey-White Rock, the former Minister of National Revenue, Kerry-Lynne Findlay, will stand for the Conservatives. For Scarborough-Agincourt, Dasong Zou will be the candidate, and in Bonavista-Burin-Trinity, Mike Windsor will again be the candidate for the Conservative Party of Canada.
"I am proud to have these candidates on our team, and I know they are going to work hard in these by-elections to deliver our positive Conservative vision for this country," said Andrew Scheer, Leader of Canada's Conservatives. "More and more people are realizing that the Liberal policies are hurting the very people they claim they want to help. Meanwhile, Canadians are tired of seeing one set of rules for Liberals and their well-connected friends, and another for everyone else.”
“Incredibly, for the first time in our entire Canadian history, both the Prime Minister and the Finance Minister are under investigation for breaking federal law. Voters in these ridings have a unique opportunity to send a clear message and ensure this government is kept honest by electing Conservative MPs that will hold the Liberals to account," concluded Scheer.
Over the next four weeks, the Conservative Party’s candidates will be out introducing themselves to voters on the doorsteps, and discussing with Canadians one-on-one what their priorities are.
The by-election date for all four ridings is on December 11, 2017.
