ICYMI: Ballot issue delays naming of next Conservative leader CPCldr

OTTAWA -- The naming of the next leader of the Conservative Party of Canada has been delayed by at least an hour and a half, with the party saying that the envelope-opening machines being used are "slicing through" some of the ballots.

“I know that there's lots of people waiting for it but it's better to do this safely, it's better to do this properly, so we're going to get it done right… and we'll get it out tonight,” Conservative Leadership Election Organizing Committee co-chair Lisa Raitt said in an interview on CTV News Channel.

Once the results are known and a victor is named, it’ll mark the start of a new chapter for the federal party.for full experience “You may get more votes across the country but the reality is, where those votes are cast really does matter,” said Raitt in an earlier interview. Lewis’ campaign head Steve Outhouse said COVID-19 actually served as a “field-leveller” for her campaign. “Her message seemed to take of very well,” he said, speaking to her late-in-the-race surge in support.

“In addition to that, how are we going to win young people? How are we going to win more women to the party? And what are we going to do to put an environmental policy in place that speaks to climate change and the issues that Canadians are looking for? So that's what the party needs to come with and that's why I'm ready to help. We're going to expand the tent, win the next election.

The liberals have stolen the ballots.🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂

Typical conservative s**t show. Didn't they have the same problem in Ontario a few year ago when Doug Ford was nominated?

CTVToronto What the heck, These people have had so much time to get it right, I’m wondering if Lecce and Ford are part of this , think return to school which should have been in the forefront since mid March . Good grief these people want to be a powerhouse for Ontario .does not bode well


Watching your live broadcast,.. What's with a lib and ndp commentator giving advice about what conservatives should do? Where is the conservative voice?

Vote liberal, they are for all the people! Trudeau and the liberals did an amazing job through one of the worst pandemics by helping so many and continues to do so, if it was the conservatives we would be in trouble and even more suffering than what is already happening?

When will it be announced?

oh boy !! were those the pesky mail in ballots

Sure there is

They all suck”

More ballots to count this time & burn

The machines are eating all the MacKay ballots and O’Toole is winning. The party needs to recalibrate the machines or their preferred candidate loses.

Geezuz Pierre not that machine!!

CTVToronto Liberal manufactured ballot machines are malfunctioning.

Oh yeah. This is going to go great.

Why wasn't it done online instead of mail in ballots.

I hope it’s the most religious one, that makes it easier to vote for another party like the last time.

So it wasn’t the result they were hoping for then.
