Bergen Appointed Leader of the Opposition in the House of Commons

 

Ottawa, ON – Today, Hon. Rona Ambrose, P.C., M.P. announced that Hon. Candice Bergen will serve as the next Opposition House Leader.

"I am honoured to serve Conservatives and Canadians as the next House Leader,” said Ms. Bergen.  "I look forward to the new challenges and opportunities that this leadership position will bring.”

Ms. Bergen is replacing Hon. Andrew Scheer, who stepped down as Opposition House Leader earlier this week.

"Conservatives are the only Party who will work to protect the taxpayers from risky Liberal schemes and out of control spending. In my new position, I will continue this good work.”
