Candice Bergen appointed Conservative House leader #cdnpoli #CPC

Former cabinet minister Candice Bergen has been appointed the Conservative Party’s House leader, replacing Andrew Scheer. Scheer recently stepped down to pursue a leadership bid.

The Manitoba MP had floated a leadership run of her own, but that now seems unlikely given her new appointment. Candidates for leadership cannot serve in the party’s shadow cabinet.

Bergen had served as the party’s natural resources critic.
