Conservative Party of Canada Leader Andrew Scheer was in South Surrey Sunday morning for a media event, but issues specific to the Semiahmoo Peninsula were not the focus.
Conservative leader @AndrewScheer is in South Surrey today for an announcement. Media is waiting at Semiahmoo Mall then they're going to transport us to the event location. It's at a private residence and owners dont want their address public.

Sunday morning, Scheer announced an income tax cut policy that would apply to the lowest income bracket, reducing the rate from 15 per cent to 13.75 per cent.
In a news release, the Conservative party says that the tax cut will allow a taxpayer to save as much as $444.51 on their taxes.
Note: A previous version of this story reported that Andrew Scheer’s staff told Peace Arch News that South Surrey-White Rock candidate Kerry-Lynne Findlay was not present the event, held at a private residence in South Surrey.
A representative from the campaign called PAN earlier this afternoon, and said that Findlay was there.
