Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer was in Winnipeg Monday to hear concerns from local residents.
Portage-Lisgar MP Candice Bergen hosted the leader of Canada's Conservatives at a town hall meeting in Winnipeg.
Throughout the day, Bergen participated in Scheer's 'A Safer Canada: Equipping Police to Protect' announcement and two round tables in regard to guns, gangs and how Canada’s Conservatives will give our police the tools and support they need to keep our communities safe.
"We were able to sit down with important stakeholders and discuss how a Conservative Government would support our police and will give them the resources they need to do their jobs and keep Canadians safe," Bergen says. "Justin Trudeau has failed our police and has proven that he’s unwilling to seriously address the increasing gun and gang violence in Canada."
The day wrapped up with a Town Hall event, hosted by Scheer and moderated by Bergen. She says with no topic off the table, attendees were able to ask questions frankly and directly to the Leader of Canada’s Conservatives. "It was so encouraging to see so many people interested in hearing our message," Bergen says.
