Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer has taken heat from some of his defeated candidates this week — but those who lost in October aren't the only ones with reasons to want a change at the top.

Most of the Conservative incumbents who won re-election in Ontario and Quebec did so despite a drop in their share of the vote — a drop that risked costing some of them their seats.

Meanwhile, little more than a third of the entire Conservative caucus represent ridings where Conservative members backed Scheer on the first ballot of the 2017 leadership race. An even smaller number of Conservatives from those ridings endorsed Scheer's initial bid for the leadership.
