Ottawa-area MP Pierre Poilievre has announced he will officially seek the leadership of the federal Conservative Party.
Poilievre made the announcement in a video he shared via Twitter on Saturday evening that also takes aim at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
“Trudeau thinks he’s your boss. He’s got it backwards. You are the boss. That’s why I’m running for prime minister,” he said in the video.
Poilievre becomes the candidate seeking to replace Erin O’Toole, who was voted out as leader earlier this week.
