Jason Kenney headed to Ontario to campaign for Andrew Scheer in crucial Toronto-area ridings - 2019-10-02
EDMONTON — Jason Kenney, who has long promised he would campaign on behalf of Andrew Scheer's Conservatives against Justin Trudeau's Liberals, will make good on that vow this weekend, with more than a dozen appearances in his old stomping grounds around Toronto.
Kenney is planning to appear alongside various local Conservative candidates — details aren't finalized — to buff up support in crucial ridings before he returns to Alberta for the upcoming session of the legislature.
The path to a majority government, generally speaking, leads through the ridings around Toronto — aka the 905. With polling showing tight races in multiple ridings, not to mention Trudeau and Scheer neck and neck as the person voters would prefer to see as prime minister, it makes sense for the Tories to pull out all the stops.
