Rookie MP for Hastings-Lennox and Addington Derek Sloan has announced he will be running in the leadership race for the Conservative Party of Canada.

Sloan was first elected to federal Parliament in October 2019 and had no political experience prior to the election. Nevertheless, according to a news release sent out on Wednesday, he has been "actively involved in the Conservative Party both as a student at Queen's University and in the local riding."

The young MP, who is only 35 years old, was born in Waterford, Ont. He attended the Kingston, Ont., university (Queen's) and worked as a lawyer, business owner and entrepreneur prior to his time on the Hill. He now lives with his wife Jennifer and their three young children — Nora, 3, Callum, 4, and Fiona, 6 — in Belleville's countryside.
