Tories to work with provincial counterparts to rebuild in Atlantic Canada

WATCH ABOVE: Interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose held a meeting with her four Atlantic Canada counterparts to come up with ways for each of their provincial and federal parties to rebuild after Liberal landslides last year. Global's Legislative Reporter Marieke Walsh reports.


HALIFAX – Interim Conservative leader Rona Ambrose says her party will be working closely with its provincial counterparts to rebuild support in Liberal-dominated Atlantic Canada.

Speaking at the annual general meeting of the Nova Scotia Tories today in Halifax, Ambrose said a lot of work needs to be done to earn back the trust of voters after the Liberals swept the region in October’s election.

She says it’s an opportunity to form a unique partnership with the Tory leaders in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador.

Ambrose says she met with all four leaders on Saturday morning, a meeting she says hasn’t happened in two decades.

The federal Conservatives will elect a new leader in May 2017.
