Mayor Kennedy Stewart inserted himself into the federal election campaign Wednesday in a big way by saying that Conservative leader Andrew Scheer would be "a disaster for the city" if elected prime minister.

Stewart, who served for seven years as an NDP MP in Burnaby before resigning to take an independent run for mayor last fall, read from a prepared two-minute script at a news conference at city hall.

"This is a critical election for Canadians, and I'm worried — I'm worried that an Andrew Scheer Conservative government could be elected, and this would be a disaster for the city," the mayor told reporters.
