Local MP reacts to Andrew Scheer’s resignation
Kootenay-Columbia MP Rob Morrison says he thanks outgoing Conservative Party of Canada leader Andrew Scheer for his sacrifices.
Scheer announced Dec. 12 that he will be stepping down as party leader, and Leader of the Opposition.
“It has been a privilege to work with Andrew Scheer over the past few months and I thank him for his dedication to our country and to the Conservative Party. We serve in government to create a better world for our children and his desire to spend more time with his family is honourable,” said MP Morrison.
“As a father of five, who travelled throughout my career, I understand the demands and sacrifices that he has made; and I thank him for his leadership. Conservatives are united and ready to deal with the important issues our country is facing, such as ensuring a fair USMCA agreement and resolving trade issues around softwood lumber. We will continue to work hard, for all Canadians, to help them get ahead,” Morrison said.
