MPs React to Andrew Scheer’s Decision to Step Down as Conservative Leader

MPs speak with reporters on Parliament Hill following Andrew Scheer’s announcement he is stepping down as leader of the Conservative Party of Canada. He will stay on as leader until a replacemnet is chosen and will remain as MP. Scheer’s resignation comes amid revelations party funds were used to partly pay for his children’s private school tuition. His leadership had been under scrutiny in the wake of the October 21 federal election, and he was facing a mandatory leadership review at the party’s biennial convention next April.
