Andrew Scheer, leader of the Conservative party, held a brief meet and greet on Thursday evening at the Times Hotel in Sherbooke. He was joined by the conservative candidates from local ridings, running in the upcoming federal election. As Scheer and his wife took a brief stroll around Lac des Nations, Richmond-Arthabaska Conservative MP Alain Rayes and Sherbrooke riding candidate Dany Sévigny took a moment to address the roughly 50 supporters in attendance. Scheer then gave a brief campaign speech. None of the three candidates addressed the crowd in English. Published in the Monday, Sept. 23 edition of The Record.
