As a northerner, it is very important to me that the next Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada understands rural and northern issues. Erin O’Toole has demonstrated that he is committed to improving healthcare access in northern Ontario and across northern Canada. He has committed to keeping northern communities safe by doubling defence spending with targeted northern initiatives. And most importantly, he has committed to ending the Liberal jobs crisis across Canada. I am excited to join Team O’Toole. He is the leader Canada needs.
