Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer will enter a rally in the riding of Vaughan—Woodbridge Wednesday evening to the sound of an upbeat, custom rock number composed by the co-writer behind some of Canadian rock star Bryan Adams’ most memorable hits.

The party has chosen Canadian songwriter Jim Vallance to craft an original song for the Conservatives’ 2019 campaign.

The final cut is called ‘Get Ahead’ ⁠— a nod to Scheer’s campaign slogan: “It’s Time For You To Get Ahead.”

This is the first time the Conservative Party of Canada has commissioned a song for an election race, said Brock Harrison, director of communications for the Conservative campaign.

Harrison said the decision was made in part to avoid the legal complications of using someone else’s music.
