Canada: Poilievre wins Conservative leadership race

Source: The Globe and Mail [Canada]

“Pierre Poilievre called on Conservatives to put aside their differences and unite on a mission to secure government as he won the party leadership in a landslide on Saturday night. The Ottawa-area MP secured the support of 68.15 per cent of voting members, ending a seven-month leadership race. His closest rival was former Quebec premier Jean Charest, who had 16.07-per-cent support. … Mr. Poilievre’s victory sets the stage for him to take on the Liberal government when the House of Commons reconvenes later this month.” (09/10/22)
