Party members to choose between 5 candidates in vote Sept. 10
In just over a week and a half, the federal Conservative Party of Canada will choose a new leader.
As the party prepares to elect its third leader since 2015, Conservative members in the North say they are hoping for someone who will bring stability and unity to the party — which has lost three consecutive elections — while presenting an electable alternative to the current Liberal government of Justin Trudeau.
More than 120 Nunavummiut were registered with the party to vote in the leadership contest, set for Sept. 10, said Steve Berrill, president of Nunavut’s Conservative riding association.
“I think that it really behooves us, as northerners, that we have a credible and stable leader and leadership,” Berrill said.
