In case you missed it: Erin O'Toole named new Conservative Party leader

OTTAWA -- Erin O’Toole is the new leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, securing victory on the third ballot after a historic and months-long leadership campaign.

Conservative MP O’Toole defeated Peter MacKay, picking up considerable support from members supporting candidates Leslyn Lewis and Derek Sloan.Tap hereWhile MacKay was narrowly leading after the first ballot, which saw Sloan drop off the ballot and his points reallocated, by the second ballot O’Toole picked up ground from Lewis supporters.

The announcement of the federal political party’s new leader got underway at 12:20 a.m. ET Monday, after hours of delays due to thousands of ballots being damaged during the counting process. The support was calculated in points, with 100 points allocated to each of the 338 ridings, meaning there were 33,800 points up for grabs. The winner needed to secure at least 16,901 points to win. O’Toole secured 19,271.

O’Toole is now being given a chance to spell out his vision for the future and direction of the party, taking the stage to give his first speech as the new leader, hours later than anticipated.

Would of preferred Dr. Lewis. As I am not some Black Face voting racist. But he is a good man, with military and academic accomplishments. He is a huge step up from the Uneducated and unqualified, Freeland and Trudeau.

Anything is better than Mr. blackface!

No friend of fn

Well that really sucks!

Are old white guys the only ones qualified to lie to us?

Oh great! Another man who has no idea how people who don’t look like him live.

Don't worry, people will let you down.

A Leader who will fight for Canada!

These clowns couldn't even run their own convention without MAJOR clustf*cks and screw ups, and they think they can run the country? 🙄

You won’t get the chance to old man

Trudeau is laughing right now

I wonder who 'you' is referring to.

Lol they picked a literal tool

Congrats but I’m not CON supporter.

Bye bye Peter you torched the PC's and it's you who got toasted.

What happened to the 175,000 ballots they said were cast?

What a sad night and huge insult to conservative voters. CPC gave everyone the finger and made them wait hours while they rigged it for their prefered candidate. BS O'Toole is the real winner. RIGGED!

Better speaker than Andy Shmeer ever was.

Where were their masks?hugging, lots of people in the same room with no masks, no social distancing, hugging, Conservatives should know better!!!!

The choice remains clear for everyone in Canada.

next scandal facism UCPcorruption Alberta’s UCP is gutting prov’s fiscal & regulatory capacities, attacking public servants, privatizing healthcare system, undoing basic labour protections, suppressing dissent & eliminating municipal taxes for fossil fuel industry’s profits.

Lol Lewis really thought she was gonna make it with “ conservatives” the Anti women and blacks should be united lol


Congratulations Mr. O'Toole Say hello to your little Peter for me!
