O'Leary legal challenge of leadership finance rules set for April - 2019-11-10
O'Leary said he's whittled down his nearly $500,000 worth of debt to under $160,000. Under the current rules he has to pay it off by next May.
O'Leary dropped out of the 2017 leadership race after dismal internal polling results, and threw his support behind Maxime Bernier, who finished second overall. Bernier later quit the Conservatives to form a splinter party, which failed to win any seats last month.
Scheer won the leadership, O'Leary said, by managing to convince the membership he'd be able to get around this issue of his socially conservative views.
