MacKay’s victory could be a ‘threat to the party unity,’ says Conservative MP Kusie
But Conservative MP Michael Cooper says Peter MacKay 'has a proven track record of uniting Conservatives, and that's precisely what he's doing in the leadership campaign. And that's what he'll do if he's elected as leader.'
Conservative leadership candidates Erin O'Toole, left, and Peter MacKay are the front-runners in the leadership race. Conservative MP Stephanie Kusie told The Hill Times that if 'Peter is the victor, and he still could be, it is a threat to the unity of the party.' Ms. Kusie said Western Canadians and social conservatives could leave the party if Mr. MacKay wins. But Conservative MP Michael Cooper, not pictured, disagrees.
