Conservative Party Leadership Contest
With the nasty barbs, the explosive rhetoric and sucker punches to personality, Conservatives are lining up behind six potential candidates to lead them out of Opposition and into the government. Which way will they go?
Animosity is driving the bus in the Conservatives largest leadership race ever. More than 400,000 memberships have been sold according to the Party leadership committee, with the closing deadline today.
Six candidates in all are looking to lead the party into the next election with Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre siphoning off most of the air in the room. Former Quebec Premier and leader of the PC Party, Jean Charest is on the list, along with former Brampton Mayor and Ontario PC leader Patrick Brown and former leadership candidate, Leslyn Lewis in the ring. Roman Baber, a former Ontario MPP, and current Conservative MP Scott Aitchison round out the list.
Two debates are behind us with the leadership convention set for September in Ottawa.
