Conservative MPs calling on party to hold leadership convention in spring 2017
'I think we need enough time to have all the candidates, both within and outside the party to come forward if they choose. Almost to a person every MP I’ve talked to agrees with that,' says Conservative MP Tom Lukiwski.
Conservative MPs want their party to hold a leadership convention to replace outgoing Prime Minister Stephen Harper in spring 2017. The earlier the convention, the better it benefits potential candidates such as Jason Kenney, pictured, who likely already have an organization to run a leadership campaign, MPs say.
