Pierre Poilievre says he’s running on cost of living and freedom
Longtime Conservative member of parliament Pierre Poilievre was the first to launch a campaign to be the next Conservative Party of Canada leader. Poilievre joined True North's Andrew Lawton for a wide-ranging chat about why he's running, and what he seeks to do as Conservative leader and prime minister if he's elected. Poilievre said he's running to tackle the cost of living crisis, and says his message of freedom will not only unite conservatives, but also Canadians. He also contrasted himself with Jean Charest, whom he accused of being a high-tax Liberal.
