Scheer gathers Conservatives to plot strategy for Parliament’s return

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer gathers his MPs and senators around him today to plot strategy for Parliament’s return on Monday.

The caucus retreat comes at a time when many Tories are plotting their own strategies for how best to replace Scheer.

At least three sitting Conservative MPs are launching leadership campaigns, and another former MP, Peter MacKay is snapping up support from many others.

But Scheer is expected to remain leader of the party until the members choose a new boss on June 27, and he must now set the course for the Opposition’s priorities in the minority Parliament.

He’s expected to tell his caucus today that despite the leadership race, they must remain united and focused on their elected task of holding the government to account.
