REPORT: Pierre Poilievre To Announce Run For Conservative Leadership

Poilievre already has strong support among the Conservative base, who admire his willingness to fight back against the Liberal political and media establishment.

Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre is set to announce a bid for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada according to the Toronto Star.

While there would be some skepticism about such a report, it’s notable that it was retweeted by former to Harper strategist Jenni Byrne, who led the 2011 majority government campaign.

The story mentions that Byrne, and former Conservative Cabinet Minister John Baird will be on board to help Poilievre’s campaign.

This is great news for Canada.

The Liberal political and media elites have been trying to foist candidates like Jean Charest onto the Conservative Party, ignoring the Conservative base and seeking to make sure the base is silenced.

By contrast, Poilievre has shown a willingness to fight back, call out the lies of the Liberal elites, and shows a tremendous ability to get his message out far and wide, something that the Conservatives have struggled with as of late.

As J.J. McCullough said on Twitter, Poilievre is “an instant front runner.”

“Instant front-runner. Having John Baird on board is huge as well. Conservatives are really excited about his candidacy, as much as the media has tried to ignore the momentum that’s been quietly growing behind him.”

PIERRE will be a fresh face to the conservative party and a thorn for the liberals.

My criteria? How would that individual do representing Canada as Prime Minister when dealing with leaders of other countries. I don’t give a damn if they can even spell selfie and I want someone who puts Canada first. If we look after ourselves first then we will be able to adapt to a changing climate and a changing world and might even be able to help others.

Personally I like Pierre Poilievre. He has had good exposure in the house, and on you tube. I feel he has better recognition power than some of the other people that are considering running.
He is quick on his feet and does not take any lip. (lol)
Hopefully he will not have any skeletons from the past to go against the Conservatives. This country can not stay on this path much longer.

Of all the names mentioned so far I believe he would be the best choice but the Conservatives need to be sure there is nothing in his closet but clothes.JMHO

Poilievre is the right pick, Conservative party should not have debates to select the candidate, they already have the right man then why to waste time just announce that Pierre is their next leader of the party, and that it.

At this time in world politics we need a very Canadian strong man. The fake puppet Canadians working for the lieberals/democrats/farleft/communist taken UN/China/Russia/Iran/terrorists causing forced world migration will be attacking our sovereignty and any leader we try to elect with our bought out main stream media will be crucified and Canada has been divided and weakened by these puppets. We are in need of a very strong man working for Canada alone. Many American citizens are calling for the USA to quit the UN, and Canada as they are attacking us as well should also step out of what has… Read more »
