 “Andrew Scheer is the best candidate to win over Atlantic Canada under his compassionate and real Conservative vision” said Penashue, “He has consistently shown that he can unite Conservatives from all coasts of our country.”

“I am pleased to have the support of Peter Penashue,” said Scheer, “He will be a great asset in helping us reach out to Atlantic Canadians and welcoming and inviting them into our Conservative vision.”
