OTTAWA—Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer has announced he will step down once a new leader of the Conservative Party of Canada is selected.

Scheer told his caucus MPs at an emergency caucus meeting Thursday that he would be quitting, but will remain as leader of the Official Opposition until a new leader is chosen.

Conservative MPs then filed into the House of Commons tight-lipped, where Scheer delivered his resignation speech.
