Former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper released a video on social media today endorsing Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre for leader.
“I haven’t talked to you like this in a while and much has transpired. Our Party once again has a leadership race underway. In this particular race there has been a lot of speculation about who i support and who i do not support and why.” the former PM said.
“Its a strong field but one candidate has garnered disproportionate attention. Pierre Poilievre was a strong minister in my Government. In the past several years he has been our party’s most vocal and effective critic of the Trudeau Liberals. He has been talking about the issues, especially the economic issues that matter” PM Harper continued.
The Conservatives are currently looking for a new leader to represent the party in the next election. The conservative leadership vote takes place on September 10, 2022.
