‘The way we’re heading, we’re unelectable,’ says former Conservative Senator LeBreton
The Conservative Party’s leadership election entered a divisive phase late last week when leadership candidates started challenging each other’s supporters’ memberships, calling on the party to declare those ineligible to vote. The last day to challenge anyone's membership is July 4. The final list will be made available to all candidates by July 29.
All leadership candidates, including Pierre Poilievre, top left, Leslyn Lewis, Jean Charest, Scott Aitchison, Patrick Brown, and Roman Baber, received the preliminary membership lists late last week and are now in the persuasion phase. Each of the candidates will be making their case to party members on why they should lead the party. The Hill Times photographs by Andrew Meade, Sam Garcia, and handouts
