OTTAWA — Maxime Bernier's closest caucus ally says he has no plans to join the renegade Quebec MP's new party.

Conservative MP Alex Nuttall played a key role in Bernier's unsuccessful Conservative leadership campaign last year that saw him lose by the narrowest of margins to Andrew Scheer. And he's continued to be a close ally of Bernier's since then.

But Nuttall says he was elected as a Conservative and won't even broach the idea of joining Bernier's yet-to-be-formed party with his constituents, who narrowly elected him as MP for Barrie–Springwater–Oro-Medonte in 2015.
