UPDATE: The new interim leader of the Federal Conservative Party has been chosen after a private vote by the Caucus this evening.

The Honourable Candice Bergen, the MP for Portage-Lisgar and former Deputy Conservative Leader, has been voted in as the new interim leader of the Conservative Party of Canada after Erin O'Toole was removed as leader earlier this morning.


Conservative Party of Canada Members of Parliament held a vote this morning to determine if leader Erin O'Toole would continue to lead the Party, or if they would go in a different direction. 73 out of 119 Conservative MP's voted to remove O'Toole as the Party's leader.

This comes five months after the Conservatives lost September's Federal Election, and ends his leadership of the Party at just 18 months.
