Conservative leadership contenders Erin O’Toole, Peter MacKay, Derek Sloan, and Leslyn Lewis square off in the party’s English-language debate in Toronto. This is the second of two official debates hosted by the federal Conservative party. In order to maintain public-health measures that are in place due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there is no in-person audience. The debate is moderated by Lisa Raitt, co-chair of the party’s leadership election organizing committee.
The party will announce its successor to Andrew Scheer after August 21, once mail-in ballots have been counted and examined by scrutineers.
