On Friday afternoon, local conservatives and curious members of the public got a chance to meet Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer during a meet and greet at the Lions Hall in Shawville.
THE EQUITY got a chance to ask Canada’s youngest federal party leader some questions before he addressed the crowd of about 40.
This was Scheer’s first time in Shawville, part of a national tour he has been doing since winning the party leadership on May 27. He became a frontrunner after the withdrawal of bombastic candidate Kevin O’Leary, going on to oust Quebec libertarian Maxime Bernier 50.95 per cent to 49.05 per cent in the 13th round of voting. He took the reins from interim leader Rona Ambrose and former Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
