Former Ontario MPs Calandra and Watson endorse Andrew Scheer for Conservative Leader

Today, former Ontario MPs Paul Calandra and Jeff Watson announced their support for Andrew Scheer’s candidacy for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada. 


Calandra was the former MP for Oak Ridges-Markham and Parliamentary Secretary to Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Jeff Watson was the former MP for Essex and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Transport.

Andrew Scheer is the best candidate to unite the Conservative Party under a clear and real Conservative vision” said Calandra, “As the former House Leader he has shown us that he can go toe to toe with Justin Trudeau and put him on the defense.”

“As a principled family man and father of five Andrew Scheer understands what families need to thrive,” said Watson, “he is deeply motivated to pass on a better future to his children than what Pierre Trudeau left our generation with.”

They now join 17 sitting MPs, five Senators, and 20 MLA's from across Canada to come out and support Andrew Scheer for Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.
