MP Weir Congratulates Andrew Scheer and Jeremy Corbyn

June 9th, 2017

Regina–Lewvan MP Erin Weir delivered the following member’s statement in the House of Commons earlier today:

Mr. Speaker,

I rise to recognize a constituent who was recently elected to lead a national organization. This young Regina–Lewvan resident has impressed many with his civic engagement and sunny disposition.

I cannot name my constituent because he is also a member of this House. I am, of course, congratulating the new Conservative leader.

The member for Regina-Qu’Appelle is a student of the Westminster system and must be almost as excited as me about the newly elected British Parliament.

Let me be the first to congratulate Jeremy Corbyn in the Canadian Parliament.

The British Labour Party made significant gains campaigning on a bold, progressive platform.

Our sister party’s success is an inspiration to the NDP as we choose a new leader to build Canada for the many, not the few.
