The Conservative Party is offering media organizations a dramatically reduced price to cover party leader Andrew Scheer's campaign — a fee that's a little less for the entire election period than what the party charged for two weeks in 2015.

The $11,500 fee is intended to encourage media outlets to assign reporters for the duration of the leader's tour at a time when many news organizations are facing serious economic challenges.

"We obviously are going to take our message across the country," Scheer said Monday during a stop in St. Catharines, Ont. "We have a great story to tell and we want to make sure that we get that story in front of Canadians in as many possible ways."
