The two celebrated their wedding in 2003. Their wedding ceremony was a lavish affair that took place at the Holy Rosary Cathedral in Regina. Marrying Jill and settling down in Regina by 2003, Andrew Scheer picked up a job as an insurance broker at his friend’s company for a brief period of time.
Speaking to The Globe and Mail about her husband’s interest in politics, she says she knew her husband was interested in running in politics from the day she met him.
