Watch as we discuss why he decided to enter the race and what he feels he brings to the growing field of candidates.

To all f you who think he is too weak just look at the Premeir of Saskatchewan, also a quiet man with a gentle demeure that everyone thought was too weak. Andrew is cut from the same cloth and has the ability to bring people together instead of dividing them. As a leader he would soon have over 50% of the country ready to vote for him.

A presentable young man who is keenly motivated by love for his country. I am particularly impressed with his idea of the “grassroots’” approach – put the power of the party into the hands of the people in the community and let ideas trickle upward rather than downward! He impresses me with his level-headed reasoning processes. I, also, like his sense of humor. I have watched him at work in the House of Commons, and like his calmness and his “tongue-in-cheek” style.

I think it would be great for Canadians to see issues tackled with a little humor. That does not mean that it should detract from the seriousness of the issue. This is a person that definitely needs “checking out” for me to decide if I will support him.

I think he has potential. He needs to show some grit. There is such a thing as being too nice. Need to hear and see more from all of them.

Why is it the women seem to like him ? The men on the other hand see a wet dishrag. There is no chance this guy is capable of leading the PC Party, he actually reminds me of our cream puff PM.

I am afraid he is not the man. He appears to weak to be a leader, soft smiles do not get respect.

Isn’t he the guy that Trudeau manhandled during Elbowgate? If he had punched out Trudeau in self-defence, I would vote for him.

Well finally. Can’t you just see his smirk driving turdumbass around the bend!

Andrew Scheer, sounds like a good candidate to be the leader of the conservative party. He shows an honest concern for Canada. I hope he has the stamina to stand up to all of the liberal garbage being thrown at Canadians. Good luck to you Mr. Scheer.

Mr. Milk-toast, Ottawa denizen, lacking in populist personality,

The little I saw and heard of Andrew I liked. I intend to follow him and hope he is the one.

Scheer lovely and common sense. I am so glad he has put his hat in the ring. He has my vote and he will be an excellent adversary to Justin.
