Outgoing Alberta Conservative MP David Yurdiga is backing a People’s Party of Canada candidate in his riding of Fort McMurray-Cold Lake. Yurdiga is throwing his support behind his riding’s PPC candidate, Shawn McDonald, True North reported on Sunday. McDonald said the endorsement from Yurdiga is huge for his campaign. “We’re the true conservatives. We’re bringing people home,” McDonald told True North. True North says a PPC source told them almost all of the members of the federal Conservative and provincial United Conservative Party association boards in the riding have switched their support to the PPC. On August 29, Yurdiga posted a picture of himself with McDonald calling him a good friend. “I consider Shawn an amazing friend and a businessman that always puts the community first,” Yurdiga wrote.
