OTTAWA — Former Conservative prime minister Stephen Harper offered a piece of advice to his successor Pierre Poilievre Wednesday: don't let the current political debates in Ottawa be about you.

Harper told a crowd of hundreds of conservatives gathered in at an Ottawa conference that as Opposition Leader, Poilievre's chief subjects shouldn't be what ideas he'll put forward in the next election.

There is time to develop those, Harper said, and given the federal NDP is a "branch plant" of the Liberals, the current Conservative party doesn't need to do anything to be a contender in the next election — it will be one, and Poilievre has a shot at winning.
