Conservatives Might Be Shopping For A Scheer Replacement Already - 2019-10-10
The Canadian federal election has been a tight race between the Liberals and Conservatives, with neither party having a clear cut path to a decisive victory just yet. Now, there are rumblings that if Andrew Scheer, the Conservative leader, can't bring the party to victory, then he will be replaced by someone else.
That's according to a new report from the Globe And Mail, which cites several anonymous sources from within the Conservative Party saying that supporters of Peter Mackay, a former Conservative cabinet minister, will mount their own leadership campaign for him if Scheer loses.
According to those anonymous sources, Scheer may not be able to hold onto his leadership position after the upcoming leadership review in 2020 if he can't form a Conservative government.
