“This convention is a momentous occasion of historical significance, as we will swear in our leader, the first female premier of the province; it will be history in the making. Party faithful will get the opportunity to demonstrate our full support and admiration for our new leader,” said PC Party President, John Babb. “It will also be an excellent opportunity to come together and celebrate our successes, as well as prepare for the election ahead.”

The convention will focus on swearing in our new leader, Premier Kathy Dunderdale and election readiness. On Friday evening, the Premier will address party delegates at celebratory dinner.
