Ottawa, ON – The Honourable Andrew Scheer, Leader of the Official Opposition, today released the following statement regarding the by-election in Chicoutimi—Le Fjord:
“On behalf of the Conservative caucus, I would like to congratulate Richard Martel on his victory in Chicoutimi - Le Fjord. Residents can count on Richard to defend the region’s interests and to be a strong advocate in Ottawa.
“Quebeckers and Canadians are tired of the Prime Minister’s big deficit and high tax agenda. More and more, they are disappointed by this Liberal government and understand that only the Conservative Party can defend their interests.
“Conservatives believe in responsible spending and in lowering taxes to make life more affordable for all Canadians. I look forward to working with Richard to spread our positive Conservative vision for Canada.”
