Last week Jasmine Louras was nominated in Outremont as the Conservative Party candidate in the upcoming by-election. The current MP, Thomas Mulcair, resigned the seat, triggering a by-election to be called in the next six months. Miss Louras, a born and raised Montrealer, began her undergraduate studies in biochemistry and exercise science before transitioning into law. She also made her mark in the Montreal start-up scene and later landed a prestigious internship at the Consulate of the United States of America in Montreal in Public Diplomacy, Public Affairs and Foreign Commercial Service. She has also started the Hellenic Jewish Partnership to establish the community on the world stage. She is heavily involved in the local communities of Outremont. She is now entering the political scene with the intention of rallying the image of the Conservative Party while staying true to the values and diversity of her native Quebec. “Having a hard-working person like Jasmine Louras representing Canada’s Conservatives on the ballot in Outremont shows exactly what kind of government Canadians can expect from us in 2019 – one that lowers taxes, balances the budget, and puts people before government,” said Andrew Scheer, Leader of the Conservative Party. “I’m excited to hit the ground and help deliver our Conservative message of putting people before government,” said Louras. “It’s time we had representation that treats taxpayers fairly and with respect, and that representation clearly comes from the Conservative Party of Canada with Andrew Scheer as leader.” To support Jasmine and her campaign, please visit
