Potential Conservative Leaders

The obvious candidates, from amongst sitting MPs, are:

Rona Ambrose,  Jason Kenney, Kellie Leitch, Erin O’Toole, Lisa Raitt and Michel Rempel ~ all minister in the last government.

Two recently retired ministers might, also, be drafted back into the contest:


Peter MacKay and John Baird.

I think Maxime Bernier will be in the race, but cannot win:

BernierMaxime_CPC which is rather a pity because his free market instincts are right.

I would call Jason Kenney the front runner, but I think Dr Leitch might be a formidable challenger.

The good news is that the CPC has an embarrassment of riches in terms of potential leaders.
