November 15, 2017 the residents of the local and surrounding ridings, Hon. Ed Fast, MP, Mark Strahl, MP, 2015 Candidate of Record for our riding of Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon (MMFC), Brad Vis, and the Conservative Association's of Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge, and Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon welcomed Conservative Party of Canada Leader, Andrew Scheer to the city of Mission!
The evening kicked off with opening remarks from our riding of Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon 2015 Candidate of Record, Brad Vis.
Brad Vis welcomed guests, and Hon. Ed Fast, MP, and Mark Strahl, MP to the event prior to Ed Fast taking to the stage to introduce the Conservative Party Leader and Official Leader of the Opposition, Andrew Scheer.
Andrew Scheer received a hearty and warm Mission welcome!
Andrew Scheer spoke of important issues that are effecting hard working Canadians in our ridings, and across the country. He spoke of how the Trudeau Liberals are hurting the middle class they claim to help.
Andrew Scheer shared, as an illustration of the regular Canadian family he came from, how he would ride the bus to get around growing up in Ottawa. Apparently it was hard to get a date that way!
He spoke to a crowd of hundreds, and it was all quiet in the house as they listened with rapt attention. Points of his speech were marked by the audience with applause, concluding with a standing ovation.
After Andrew Scheer spoke to the visiting dignitaries and the hundreds of local and surrounding riding residents he met the many local families and guests who lined up to photographed with him.
It was a wonderful evening indeed. We look forward to another visit from Andrew Scheer, the Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada!
