OTTAWA–Stephen Harper is "supportive" of some early contenders for the leadership of the federal Conservative party, but is staying neutral in the race — at least for now.

The former prime minister still has significant influence within the Conservative Party, both as its co-founder and as a member of the board that controls the party's finances.

An associate told the Star that Harper is supportive of a number of those seen as contenders for the leadership, including his former parliamentary secretary Pierre Poilievre and former cabinet ministers Peter MacKay and Erin O'Toole.
