Conservative Party of Canada to choose new leader Sunday

Todd Lamirande explains what we know about the candidates’ positions on Indigenous-related policy areas

On Sunday the Conservative Party of Canada will have a new leader.

The race to replace Andrew Scheer has come down to four candidates and their vision for the party, which members will decide in a vote on Sunday.

The two front runners include former MP and cabinet minister Peter MacKay, and current MP for Durham Erin O’Toole.

Rookie MP Derek Sloan and Toronto lawyer Leslyn Lewis, who has never held office, round out the field.
