OTTAWA–Former Conservative cabinet minister John Baird will not seek the party's leadership, dashing the hopes of party activists that another big name would enter the race.

Baird was under considerable pressure from Conservative allies and operators to jump into the contest, which some prominent party activists are lamenting as an uninspired race.

Baird, who has worked lucrative private-sector jobs since he left politics in 2015, announced he would not put his name forward Thursday.
