OTTAWA – Rona Ambrose, Leader of the Official Opposition and interim Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, made the following statement regarding MP Jason Kenney’s decision to seek the leadership of the Progressive Conservative Association of Alberta.

“As Jason embarks on this new challenge, I know he has the best interests of Albertans in his heart. Jason is a steadfast defender of conservative principles, a proud Albertan, a tireless campaigner and a fighter for ordinary Canadians from all walks of life. More than that, he is a trusted friend and a valued member of the federal Conservative caucus and team.

“On behalf of all federal Conservatives, I wish him – and all Alberta conservatives – nothing but the best in the days ahead. I encourage all conservatives to work together to forge a united path to victory.”
