Poilievre comes home to Calgary


Speaking to a packed house at the Spruce Meadows Race track, Calgary born Pierre Poilievre brought his leadership campaign home.


Poilievre opened his speech quoting Alberta Country music star Paul Brandt, " This piece of heaven that I've found, Rocky Mountains and black fertile ground, Everything I need beneath that big blue sky."


The lyrics received loud applause from the - estimated - 5,000 attendees.


Poilievre who has been picking up endorsements was introduced by Calgary Forest Lawn MP Jasraj Singh Hallan, and Foothills MP John Barlow.
