The Conservative Party leader, who does not hide his desire for a second chance, has himself said that he supports such a scenario, which was authorized by a law adopted in 2014.

Le feu vert donné par les conservateurs à ce mécanisme, qui était anticipé, ne signifie cependant pas que M. O’Toole sera assurément soumis à un vote de confiance de ses collègues, mais les donserves les pouvoirrens condentures ques possible cé suré sonsé céur in every moment.

As he did in the morning, the Conservative Party leader, who has led the party since August 2020, was convinced at a press conference that he could maintain the confidence of the majority of his party members.

When asked about the optimism he displayed to survive his electoral defeat, when his predecessor Andrew Scheer threw in the towel, he argued that this It wasn’t completely comparable.

And since Mr. Trudeau has already been caught lying in the first 10 days after the election, we need to be prepared to get more votes in the next election. I will work tirelessly to achieve this goal.

Quote from:Erin O’Toole, Leader of the Canadian Conservative Party

Our constituency is united, and we are ready to get back to work. […] This is to ensure that we are united as a group and that we are focused on fighting for Canadians., He said.

He noted that he himself voted for the 2014 law and supported the vote on the leadership of his predecessors Stephen Harper and then Andrew Scheer, after their defeat in the 2015 and 2019 elections.

If the caucus does not attempt to force Mr O’Toole to leave Mr. O’Toole, Conservative supporters will be able to vote themselves at the next party convention, but the latter should not be held before 2023. With the Trudeau government in the minority, Canadian voters may have been called back to polls by then.

According to the law passed by deputies seven years ago, all parliamentary blocs must decide the various rules that will govern their electoral conferences until the next elections. In short, it is a question of whether these decisions should be made by the leader or by assembly.

Members of Parliament must adopt procedures for the expulsion and readmission of a Member of Parliament, the election and removal of the party group leader, the leadership review, and the election of a temporary leader.

In the latter case, at least 20% of the bloc’s members must formally request a leadership review to force the vote. If this threshold is reached, the fate of the leader is decided by secret ballot.

Assuming the Conservatives go ahead with a confidence vote, Mr O’Toole would need a simple majority to stay in office. If he does not obtain this majority, the party will appoint a temporary leader and begin the process of appointing a permanent successor to Mr. O’Toole.
