Cathy McLeod will run again in the next federal election.
McLeod, the MP for Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo, announced today (Oct. 12, 2018) she will be the Conservative candidate in next year’s election. She was first elected in 2008 and was re-elected in 2011 and 2015.
“The 2019 election is right around the corner,” she said in a news release.
“Many have asked me to continue my work representing our region and see unfinished business, like the job creating Trans Mountain project, reach the finish line and deliver for our communities,” said McLeod.
“I have the passion, energy and strong support from my family to continue working hard for our region. It has become clear to me that Justin Trudeau has made life harder and less affordable for Canadians. We need an alternative to Trudeau’s ethical scandals and out- of- control spending.”
McLeod said she looks forward to working alongside party Leader Andrew Scheer.
