Scheer won’t vote in Ontario election nor campaign with Doug Ford, his office says
Andrew Scheer won’t be voting in the Ontario election and is no longer planning to campaign with Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford due to scheduling conflicts, the federal Conservative Party Leader’s office says.
Mr. Scheer – who grew up in Ottawa and moved into Stornoway, the residence in the capital city of the Leader of the Official Opposition, after winning party leadership last May – has represented the Saskatchewan riding of Regina-Qu’Appelle since 2004.
Mr. Scheer had previously planned to attend at least one campaign event with Mr. Ford during the campaign. In May, Mr. Scheer’s office told The Globe and Mail that Mr. Scheer “will work with Mr. Ford to help defeat Justin Trudeau and Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals.”
Now, with 10 days left before the June 7 election, Mr. Enwright said Mr. Scheer currently has no plans to help out on Mr. Ford’s campaign.
