Former MP and Parliamentary Secretary Costas Menegakis endorses Andrew Scheer

Costas Menegakis, former parliamentary secretary for Citizenship and Immigration and former member of parliament for Richmond Hill from 2011 to 2015 announced today his endorsement of Andrew Scheer for Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.

Said Menegakis, “Andrew Scheer is the leader we need. He has a distinct Conservative vision which will resonate with Ontarians who have been let down by years of Liberal broken promises. He also has the energy and experience to take on Justin Trudeau’s reckless spending and proposed carbon tax, making him the candidate with the best chance of winning back seats in the Greater Toronto Area and throughout Ontario.”

“Costas brings a strong Conservative voice and a great spirit of community involvement,” said Scheer, “I am very happy to have him on the team and look forward to working with him to position our party to defeat the Liberals in 2019.”

With his endorsement, Mr. Menegakis joins 24 MPs, eight Senators, 29 MLAs and MPPs and 11 former MPs supporting Andrew Scheer for Leader of the Conservative Party.
