Frustration about Andrew Scheer's continued Conservative leadership is sucking up all the oxygen from every other topic the party should be examining, and he needs to be replaced for that reason, a former top Tory says.

In an interview with The West Block's Mercedes Stephenson, Jenni Byrne, former campaign director for Stephen Harper, said there's a risk posed to the party if Scheer continues fighting to stay on as leader.

The infighting between his supporters and those who want a new leader, she says, will detract from providing substantive opposition and policy alternatives to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the upcoming minority session of parliament.
