Earlier today, The Honourable Candice Bergen, P.C., Member of Parliament for Portage-Lisgar and Conservative House Leader, delivered greetings on behalf of the Honourable Andrew Scheer and Canada’s Conservatives at the MNP Canada Games Torch Celebration in Portage la Prairie.
“It was quite exciting for Portage-Lisgar to be part of the Torch’s journey,” stated Bergen. “Portage la Prairie was one of only 48 stops the torch will make across Canada. I am so proud of everything this riding stands for and it is always an honour when City’s like Portage are recognized nationally.”
