Conservative Party Leadership Contest

Who will be the next leader of the Conservative Party?

Posted on June 4, 2022

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?

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. Leslyn Lewis, running for the 2nd time, 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.

Our Unpublished.vote question asks:

Which candidate will the Conservatives select?

  • Pierre Poilievre
  • Jean Charest
  • Leslyn Lewis
  • Patrick Brown
  • Roman Baber
  • Scott Aitchison

I voted: Pierre PoilievreHave been listening to this man for a long time. He doesn't candy-coat things but says it as it is. Somebody I trust.

I voted: Pierre PoilievreI believe in Pierre. we need a leader that works for the people not the people for the leader . And I believe Pierre is the right one

I voted: Pierre PoilievreFinally we will have a real RIGHT WING leader This is who we need to get our country back to normal

I voted: Pierre PoilievreThe best of a bad lot. Surely the Conservatives can find a top business person with a great track record to lead this party. Trudeau will probably be our Prime Minister again. Does no one understand economics and the areas requiring attention? We cannot continue catering to the Rich and things that could better be funded by private individuals. Does Poilievre not favour the freedom movement which cost we taxpayers millions of dollars unnecessarily? Let’s do better if we are to win next election. In my lifetime (84years) I have only voted for someone other than a Conservative once, but the coming election may be the second time.

I voted: Pierre PoilievrePierre Poilievre will win the leadership race by appealing to the far right. Unfortunately in going for the right vote he will alienate the general public in the next federal election. The question the party needs to ask it's self is the winning candidate electable? If not another leadership convention right after the next election. Jean Charest appeals to Quebec and the rest of the country.

I voted: Pierre PoilievreWe need an honest leader with a proven track record of standing up for Canadians and that is:

Pierre Poilievre

Honest? You'll need to look elsewhere if you want an honest leader. Proven track record? Not unless you consider a very late and over budget bridge in Barrhaven a success. It was delayed because he cancelled the Liberal planned bridge (whose idea it originally was to build) in order to put forward his own version. His politicking delayed the project a number of years and caused it to go over budget.
