The Conservative Party is united, focused on addressing cost-of-living issues and getting ready for an election.
That from Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant, upon her return from the party’s weekend convention in Quebec City.
Gallant said the party approved policies that will guide how it addresses political issues. That, she acknowledged, is a challenging process given there are different opinions within the party.
But, with the convention over, she says, the party is getting back to work, trying to convince Canadians that a Conservative-run government is a better choice than the Liberal-NDP coalition that’s currently controlling votes in the House of Commons.
“Overall, what we want to do, after all these tax increases and rising prices, is to make life affordable again,” she says. “The policies we’ll be implementing right away are policies that will make it easier for people to live.”
Gallant also says she’s been pleased with Pierre Poilievre’s leadership over the past year. She feels more Canadians have gotten to know the Conservative leader and will support his bid to become Prime Minister.
