A veteran politician who once served as House leader in Stephen Harper's Conservative government was named the interim leader of a political party seeking for Western Canada to secede from the rest of the country.

Late Tuesday afternoon, Wexit Canada posted on its Facebook page that Peter Downing had resigned as leader and that Jay Hill would take over in the interim.

"[He] will assume these responsibilities until the party is able to hold a founding convention and the grassroots members elect a new leader," the party said.
