Conservative leadership race down to just 4 contenders cdnpoli
MP Marilyn Gladu, who called for the contest to be postponed, didn't make the cut.Some senior Tories have also complained it makes the party look disconnected from the reality of many Canadians. The four candidates on the ballot have continued to campaign throughout, albeit in different ways. MacKay has been holding town halls nearly every night, fielding calls from particular regions of the country. He has advocated for the leadership vote to be moved up, arguing the party needs a leader sooner rather than later. O’Toole and Sloan have both called for delays. O’Toole continues to reach out to supporters via emails and phone calls, though both he and MacKay appear to have paused their fundraising. Both are directing people to donate to community causes instead. Sloan, meanwhile, has suggested some of the fees be refunded to candidates to offset the need to fundraise. Lewis has said the rules, as they are, should remain and she continues to solicit both funds and supporters. The party rules say members must be able to use a mail-in ballot to choose a new leader if they can’t attend a convention. The party has said that is one reason they could continue as planned with the June 27 election. Ontario activist disqualified from contest But what they’re watching for now is whether Canada Post and the company that handles the technical elements of the balloting can provide what’s needed to ensure the entire vote could be conducted that way, since it’s possible a convention won’t be able to be held. Canada Post has already said to in its service overall as it adjusts to the ongoing spread of the pandemic. The party is also mulling over how to handle a potential legal challenge from a would-be competitor. Ontario conservative activist Jim Karahalios claimed to have raised the funds and gathered the required signatures, but was disqualified from the contest. He had been heavily criticized for the tone and substance of his attacks on O’Toole’s campaign, and formal complaints were filed with the party over his conduct. An investigation into those led to his removal from the race, but Karahalios is trying to take the party to court over it and challenge the decision. He appeared to get some support for his argument from Lewis. In a statement Wednesday, she said she thought the party made the wrong call. Only members should have a say in whether someone can or can’t lead, she said. “Disqualifying candidates for beliefs or viewpoints weakens confidence in our democratic process,” she said. “If candidate Jim Karahalios met the donation and signature requirements, then a disqualification should only happen if there is a clear violation of the rules.” This report by The Canadian Press was first published March 25, 2020.
