Wes Fudge, Canadore College Brison Delegate
Jeremy Birnie, Dalhousie Kings College Brison Delegate
"I have been privileged to campaign beside Scott, and know him to be a loyal friend and an exceptionally gifted Member of Parliament, full of bold and innovative ideas. Scott has always put the interests of the Progressive Conservative Party ahead of his own, and is genuinely committed to his constituents and to his country. I believe he would make an excellent Leader."
Elected BRISON delegate in Trinity-Spadina
"Scott Brison is like a breath of fresh air for a party that requires rejuvenation. With ideas, vision and energy to burn, he has the ability to attract Canadian voters from across the country and to lead us back into government.
Hon. Ron Atkey PC QC
MP for St. Paul's 1972-74 and 1979-80
“I heard Scott for the first time several years ago when he spoke at our association's breakfast; all of us were impressed with the ease and creative ways he approached the finances of our country. I hear him now, listen to his plans for national renewal and am first relieved that things don't have to go on with variations of re-jigging the present, and then become excited with the prospect of HOPE--there can be change. It reminds me of the days when I sat on the government benches and we had a leader that wasn't afraid to break with the past, had courage to tackle seemingly intractable issues with new approaches. Scott has ideas, works them out with others, and presents to us a plan that is fresh, makes sense, and assures us of a definable goal. That's what gives us hope.”
Benno Friesen, Surrey – White Rock MP 1974-1993
"The PC Party is at a crossroads where we must choose between irrelevance or resuming our place as a principled, visionary alternative to the present government. I support Scott Brison as the person best qualified to make us a party of consequence once again and ultimately to lead us back to power."
Tom Goodman, Q.C.
Former Manitoba Vice President, PC Party of Canada
and Candidate of Record for Selkirk-Interlake
"Scott stands for core conservative principles such as economic liberty, personal freedom, and social responsibility.
He knows the Progressive Conservative Party needs renewal and he challenges us to renew. He knows that youth who are apathetic about federal politics must be excited by ideas relevant to them to become involved. He knows that Canadians are thirsting for a clear alternative to the Liberals to form government.
With his passion, commitment, and bold new ideas I am confident he will unite and inspire enough Canadian voters, campaign workers and candidates to form a new government. He will lead the restoration of effective democracy to Canada in accordance with the core principles of conservatism that he espouses."
David G. Newman, Q.C.

"I think the next campaign will be about change. Not change as a marketing slogan, but rather real genuine change. You need three things to be a credible voice for change. You need to have truly bold and innovative ideas, you need to have the courage to leave the comfort of the beaten path and pitch those ideas, and you need to be pretty smart to come up with realistic ideas and sell them to Canadians. That, in a nutshell, is a good description of Scott Brison."
President, Mont Royal PC Association
“What sold me on Scott Brison was his integrity. When he spoke at our fundraiser he was not afraid to handle tough questions or admit that he did have a complete answer to give. Instead of sliding around the questions as many politicians would, he spoke honestly, openly and passionately about his beliefs. My admiration and respect for Mr. Brison was sealed after hearing him speak that day.”
President, Edmonton Centre-East PC Association

I am confident about his abilities and capabilities both to lead the PC Party and offer to Canadians a true alternative to the current regime of professional politicians.
Col. Michel W. Drapeau (Ottawa)
