HALIFAX—During his first campaign stop in the Halifax area, federal Conservative leader Andrew Scheer said he's never commented publicly about his dual American-Canadian citizenship because he simply hasn't been asked.

Scheer greeted supporters and Nova Scotian Conservative candidates during an event Thursday evening at the May Garden Chinese restaurant in Bedford.

Earlier on Thursday, Scheer's campaign confirmed that the Conservative leader is a citizen of both Canada and the United States, but is in the process of renouncing his American citizenship, which he received through his father.
