The federal Conservatives are refusing to let former cabinet minister Steven Fletcher run under the Tory banner in the next election.

Fletcher wants to win back his old Winnipeg riding of Charleswood-St. James-Assiniboia-Headingley, a seat he held for more than a decade before losing it in 2015 to Liberal Doug Eyolfson.

But he says he got an e-mail Thursday from the party's executive director, Dustin Van Vugt, saying his bid to seek the nomination had been rejected, without any explanation.
