“Canada’s Conservatives have a positive vision for Canada, and having Sylvie join our team will ensure Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe gets the strong representation they deserve in a Conservative government that will lower taxes, and put people first,” said Andrew Scheer, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives.
“The Conservative Party of Canada is laying the groundwork to focus our energies on the kinds of issues that Canadians care about," Godin-Charest said. "Economic growth and job creation. Our team will make the right decisions based on what is in the best interests of all Canadians.”
