Membership deadline for leadership vote is March 28, 2017

Brockville – Anyone wishing to participate in the election of a new leader for the Conservative Party of Canada must become a party member by March 28, explains Michael Barrett, President of the federal riding association.

“There will be a mail-in ballot distributed to all members by the end of April and that has to be returned to the party by May 26,” says Barrett of the Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes association. “In order to participate in the vote, people must be members of the party by March 28.”

The easiest way to become a member is to go to www.conservative.ca and click “Join.” The online registration process only takes a minute.

“The resignation of Stephen Harper as leader following the election in 2015 led to the current leadership election,” notes Barrett. “Rona Ambrose has been the interim leader for the party in Ottawa, but as we prepare for the 2019 election we need to elect a new leader.”

While there are a number of candidates in that leadership race neither Barrett nor the local association are publically supporting any particular person.

“The new leader will be elected by the members who are free to vote for whomever they wish,” comments Barrett.

For more details, area residents can contact Membership Chair Mark King by email at membershiplgtirl@gmail.com
