OTTAWA—The Conservative party is moving ahead with plans to hold a leadership vote at the end of June despite escalating concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

The party's leadership election organizing committee met Sunday night to discuss the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the race to replace Andrew Scheer.

While the party is expected to take into account the difficulties of campaigning during a global pandemic, a source familiar with the committee's decision said they don't expect significant changes to the leadership race's timeline — at least not yet.
