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.
