**A note from MP Tamara Jansen (Cloverdale - Langley City)**
I was proud to be one of the first-time Conservative candidates who won in 2019, knocking off the Liberal MP in Cloverdale-Langley City.
While it was exciting to win my seat, it was disappointing to lose the election.
A note from MP Richard Bragdon (Tobique-Mactaquac)
As we go through our second Leadership race in three years, the focus for us as Conservative Party members should not just be on who can win the Leadership, but who can win the next election.
Members from coast to coast to coast have all said it or thought it at some point: we can’t keep doing the same thing as a Party if we want to win the next election.
31 years ago today, the Chinese Communist Party violently crushed student-led demonstrations in Tiananmen Square.
The students were demanding government accountability, democracy, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press. These are values that we as Canadians hold dear.
Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou has lost her court battle to have her extradition to the United States dismissed, and Canadians are right to have serious concerns about whether our government is prepared to stand up to increased backlash from China.
The Chinese government has made it clear that they in no way expected Justin Trudeau to actually allow for a fair judicial process.
Everyone in the Conservative Party, from the grassroots members, to the leadership candidates, to our entire caucus recognizes that our relationship with the Government of China needs to fundamentally change.
And it's easy to see why. China's crackdown on democratic process in Hong Kong, and the continued detainment of the two Michaels should be reason enough to be rightly angry.
