Chong: ‘My family owes everything to Canada’

Chong: ‘My family owes everything to Canada’ 
FERGUS - After months of deliberation, Wellington-Halton Hills MP Michael Chong has decided to run for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada. Chong made the announcement in a press conference in Ottawa on May 16. “We live in the greatest country in the world,” he told the Advertiser in advance of the official announcement. “To be able to participate in a democratic process like a leadership race is pretty incredible.” Since the resignation of former Conservative leader Stephen Harper, following a devastating loss to Justin Trudeau’s Liberals in last fall’s federal election, Chong said he has been encouraged by “hundreds” of people to seek the leadership of the party. Conservative insiders and everyday Canadians alike, including many from Wellington County, have expressed their support, Chong said.
