Unifying the divided caucuses is the number one job for Candice Bergen, the leader of the new Interim Tories.


Ottawa-Manitoba Parliamentarian Candice Bergen is awakening today with a new task of unifying a conservative Caucus.

The party’s former deputy leader was elected as interim party leader by her colleagues after a majority of parliamentarians expelled Erin O’Toole from top jobs.

Bergen faces a caucuses that have been angry for weeks after losing to Outur’s leadership since his defeat in last year’s elections.

The party must also begin preparing to choose a permanent leader.

This will be the third race in the last five years.

Party leader Rob Butterson told members that the National Council would appoint a leader election organizing committee and meet shortly to discuss the issue.

People are already guessing who will be in the race.

Tory financial critics and MP Pierre Poirievre in the Ottawa region will be considered strong candidates if he decides to run.

MP Marilyn Gradu in southwestern Ontario, who tentatively named her to lead the party, told reporters Wednesday that she was considering bidding for another leader.

Former Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s conservative minister and interim Prime Minister Rona Ambrose denied his escape on Wednesday, despite many members hoping to join the fight. ..
