Description

This conversation was recorded on May 9, 2022. Pierre Poilievre, a life-long conservative, is running to be the Prime Minister of Canada. Pierre has served as a trusted senior cabinet minister in Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government and has served as a Member of Parliament for seven terms. He grew up in Calgary and graduated from the University of Calgary with a degree in International Relations. We discussed his election efforts, Canada’s energy infrastructure and economic policy, as well as Poilievre’s mission to tackle the housing crisis, lower the cost of living, defund Canadian media, and develop Canadian natural resources.
