Bergen sought quick move into Opposition leader's residence, sources say - 2022-03-15
Erin O'Toole was pushed to vacate Stornoway, the residence of the Official Opposition leader, by new interim leader Candice Bergen within weeks of being turfed by Conservative MPs, according to three sources.
The sources said that Ms. Bergen, who will serve as interim leader until the party votes for a new leader on Sept. 10, asked Mr. O'Toole, his wife Rebecca and their two children to leave Stornoway. The Globe and Mail is not identifying the three sources because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
Mr. O'Toole was taken aback at having to move out so quickly, the sources said.
The O'Toole family moved out on March 3, just over a month after he was voted out by his caucus, and Ms. Bergen settled into Stornoway last Saturday.
