she says she isn't interested.

In politics, that means she is in the process of setting up her campaign committee and filing the paperwork.

I'm not sure. A lot of people wanted her to run the last time and I think she would have had a good chance. She declined then. Hope she changes her mind.

About time for Scheer!  But then again, ghosts can't vote.

I think Rona Ambrose would be a great leader of the CPC.

Harper Conservatives private member bill, 'Motion 312', => introduced by Conservative MP Stephen Woodworth... intended to, "strike a committee to examine the definition of a human being and when human life begins." 10 Harper Conservative Cabinet Ministers voted for the bill - Rona Ambrose was one of those 10... as Minister for Status of Women no less!

The members who picked between social conservative Scheer and crazy tinfoil wearing Max Bernier will now go 180 degrees and choose a gay-pride marching, pro-abortion (I think.....   her blip in 2012 was bizarre) woman?

I doubt that very much.   Many CPC members weren’t happy with her helping Trudeau with NAFTA. The term “Traitor” was used.

They will if they ever want to form a government. That is a decision they will have to make.

Neither Ambrose nor McKay are bilingual.  That would be dumb.

Believe Mackay speaks French. Ambrose is fluent in Spanish and Portuguese but apparently her French is not as good.

I saw somewhere that he wasn’t, but I think he is.  Need a bilingual candidate.

same for justVisitingJason! Harper is said to be "guiding" the process... that if Ambrose can't be coaxed/enticed... Jason's their man!

Considering the taxpayer footed the over $215,000 bill for Trudeau's Bahama's vacation, Liberals shouldn't be throwing stones.

yabut, 75% of that cost was for security... surely you can't be against security/protection measures for a Canadian Prime Minister - surely.

hey now, since Peter MacKay is trending now, how about his use of that $30K an hour military Challenger Jet to fly him to Halifax for a 'lobster fest'... had to defend his title as lobster banding champion!  ;D

considering its still HIS Reform Party... considering HE chased out any sniff of progressives - even removing Progressive from the Party name... waddabout the return of THIS GUY?



And Now, the Harper Comeback. Just Read the Signs --- All the ways he’s campaigned for leader almost as soon as Scheer won.

There was an article in the National Post last round of the leadership debates that addressed the various candidates. MacKay is quoted in the article, but since he wasn't running at the time he is not evaluated.

If Rona Ambrose wins, the Conservatives will win a majority.  I say this because my father, a blood red Liberal, says he likes her.  ???

I read a Chantal Hebert column a while back in which she said she had been hearing buzz that Trudeau might offer Ambrose the post of US Ambassador in hopes of keeping her from becoming CPC leader.

On the CTV election night coverage, Lisa Laflamme was not-too-subtly trying to coax Ambrose to come out of retirement and take over the CPC, and Ambrose said that she was enjoying her new life too much to return to politics.


of all the people out there, I think Rona Ambrose is the one who "checks the most boxes".
