Morden, MB – Hon. Candice Bergen, Conservative House Leader and Member of Parliament for Portage-Lisgar has announced that she will be seeking re-election in 2019.

"Serving the people of Portage-Lisgar in the community, and representing their interests in Ottawa has been my privilege for the past nine years,” said Bergen. "I am proud of all that we have accomplished together, and look forward to running again in 2019 to continue our good work.”


Candice was first elected in 2008 as the Member of Parliament for Portage-Lisgar and has held a variety of important roles since. These have included serving as the Minister of State for Social Development in Prime Minister Harper’s Cabinet, and the Conservative House Leader to both Rona Ambrose, and Andrew Scheer.

"I look forward to working with all of my Conservative colleagues and supporters across Canada to put an end to Justin Trudeau’s reckless and harmful policies and tax hikes. A Conservative Government led by Andrew Scheer will usher in a new era of responsible government spending, lower taxes, and bring about a more affordable Canada for everyone,” concluded MP Bergen.
