Having served in Parliament with most of the leadership candidates – and I consider many of them my friends – I know that there are a number of good choices among the fourteen. But I’ve decided to support Erin O’Toole. When Erin arrived on Parliament Hill after his by-election win in 2012, I was immediately impressed. Erin is intelligent, principled, approachable, humble, and hardworking – all essential qualities in our next leader. After carefully considering all the candidates, I’ve become convinced that Erin O’Toole is the one who can most thoughtfully and effectively lead our party, our parliamentary caucus, and eventually our country.
