Conservatives To Pick Leader June 27, 2020

Organizing committee co-chair Dan Nowlan announced the date.

The Conservatives will pick a new leader June 27, 2020.

That’s according to Dan Nowlan, co-chair of the organizing committee.

He made the announcement on CBC Power & Politics:

Early indications show Pierre Poilievre to be the top choice of the Conservative base, while Rona Ambrose has strong support among the top party establishment. Meanwhile, the media elites have tried pushing Jean Charest, but that has totally fallen flat among actual Canadian Conservatives.

Steve Richards

End of June? Three months too late. That means Scheer will fubble bubble around for another 6 months and really make a mess of things. Trudeau gets another free ride for another 6 months. End of March in Ontario where the decision will be made is a must.

Probably a good idea as will ensure only serious candidates run as last thing Tories need is a large number of candidates like last time. 4 or 5 high quality ones is better than 13 largely mediocre with a few good ones. In addition while NDP and BQ are unlikely to pull the plug anytime soon, new leader needs time to introduce themselves to Canadians so this gives them that time.
