Statement by MP Zimmer on Conservative Party Leadership

OTTAWA – Bob Zimmer, Member of Parliament for Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies, issued the following statement regarding today’s caucus vote:  

“Today, the Conservative caucus voted to replace Erin O’Toole as the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.  

“Leading a national party is never easy and I want to thank Erin and his family for the years of public service they have given to Canadians. I am grateful for the opportunity he has given me as Shadow Minister for Northern Affairs and Arctic Sovereignty; Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency.  

“Now it is time for us to move forward, united. Later this evening our caucus will be choosing an interim leader who will serve until a new leader is elected by our Conservative Party membership.  

“I will continue to remain focused on ensuring that the voices of our hard-working Northeastern BC residents are heard here in Ottawa and defeating the Liberals in the next election.”
