Pierre Poilievre is the new Leader of the Conservative Party. He

was elected Leader of the Conservative Party in a major victory garnering 68.15 percent of votes cast.

At the Conservative Party of Canada Leadership Election convention held today in Ottawa, members made a choice of their new leader over contestants Jean Charest- former Premier of Quebec, Scott Aitchison, Leslyn Lewis and Roman Baber.

The new leader opened his acceptance speech by paying respect to late Queen Elizabeth II of England. Queen Elizabeth II was also the Head of Canada until her passing.

“I begin on behalf of everyone here by expressing my sorrow at the passing of our beloved Queen,” said Poilievre.

Ian Brodie, Chair of the Conservative Party of Canada Leadership Election Committee in a statement earlier said the organising committee was considering an appropriate , respectful way to announce the results of the 2022 Leadership Election following the sad news of the death of Queen Elizabeth 11.

Pierre Poilievre launched into the campaign-style oratory as he threw a lot of “red meat” at the audience, who clapped and gave a standing ovation.

The mere mention of the current  government of Justin Trudeau brought a huge response while some yelled “freedom.”

He hopes his new government, if and when elected, “would put you first, your pay check, your home… your retirement and your money.”

The party recorded a large membership breaking all past records. The party had 678,702 party members who were eligible to vote. According to the election committee, 437,854 ballots were received by the deadline while 417,987 of the ballots   were accepted and would be counted.

Erin O’ Toole said the Conservative Party needs to be united behind the next leader because “our country needs unity more than ever before.’”

“The Conservative Party needs to be compassioned because Canadians need to be heard, they need to be understood more than ever before.

“And the Conservative Party needs to be strong, not with the strength to overpower our rivals but with the strength of character needed to care for those in need or those who are losing faith in our country,” he noted.

He said the Conservative Party must place unity first because the fabric of federation has been stretched thin over the last few years by laws, fear and uncertainty.

“The pandemic came to our shore as health crisis but has transformed into a political crisis,” said Erin O’Toole.

Candice Bergen, former Interim Leader Conservative Party also called for unity of the party.

“The party should move away from identity politics and labelling but towards unity in disagreement,” she said.

She advised the party not to a allow members to be any kind of Conservative that can be divided into groups and labels.

“Do not descend into the culture of identity politics and division in our own party. Do the opposite,” said MP Candice Bergen.

The former Interim Leader is not seeking re-election.
