FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


November 6, 2015 - Ottawa, Ontario - Mr. Blaine Calkins, Member of Parliament for the Federal Constituency of Red Deer - Lacombe, was in Ottawa this week meeting with his colleagues for the first time since the October 19, 2015.  While in Ottawa, the Conservative Caucus of MPs and Senators voted on an interim leader, selecting the Honourable Rona Ambrose to be the Interim Party Leader and Interim Leader of the Official Opposition.

  "Ms. Ambrose is an excellent choice for the position of Interim Party Leader," said Calkins. "She and I have worked very closely together over the last 10 years and she has a wealth of experience in many portfolios.  She will be able to unite our caucus as an effective team as well as inspire members of our Conservative Party until a new leader is chosen.  Rona has earned the trust and respect of her peers and I know we made the right decision. I look forward to working with a strong team of fellow Conservatives in Ottawa to hold the Trudeau Liberals to account."
