A former Conservative MP says Andrew Scheer shouldn't stay on as leader after a second-place finish in last week's federal election, and he's hoping former Tory cabinet minister Peter MacKay will enter a possible leadership race.

Terence Young, an MP from 2008 to 2015 and a defeated Conservative candidate in Oakville, Ont., in this campaign, said in an interview with The Globe and Mail that despite Mr. Scheer working hard and being a "very nice man," he "can't connect with voters."

More Conservatives are also raising questions about Mr. Scheer's leadership, but several other candidates said the Conservative Leader should stay on.
