Statement by Marilyn Gladu on request to suspend Conservative Leadership race

March 13, 2020 (Sarnia) – On March 12, Conservative Party Leadership candidate Rudy Husny officially requested that the leadership contest be suspended until after the Coronavirus situation has been dealt with.

Today, Sarnia-Lambton MP and leadership candidate Marilyn Gladu expressed her support for this request.

“Canadians’ attention is elsewhere right now, which is as it should be,” says Gladu. “Parliament has been suspended, and citizens are most concerned with dealing with safely managing life logistics for themselves, their families, their communities and their businesses.

“Now is not the time for leaders to divide the country. Now is the time for us to pull together as Canadians in support of important work being done. There will be ample time for debate and competition when the immediate challenges have been safely and effectively handled.”
