Today, Tony Clement announced that he is dropping out of the Conservative Party of Canada leadership race.

Clement posted a Facebook message informing supporters of his decision to leave the race strongly suggesting that an inability to raise the necessary funds was the ultimate deciding factor.

Watch as I provide an update of who’s in, who’s out and who may still get in.

If we have not got a strong conservative official opposition party together by now we can all count on another Trudeau election win..
Possibly even a full majority again.
I do not believe this is a coincidence..

Bill Elder that is what i think as well. Too much to clean up.

The winner will need to give Tony an important position. He is too valuable for the Party to let him disappear.

I just renewed my party membership last night and I am dissappointed that Tony dropped out. He declared that the CBC would “go the way of the dodo bird”….much more likely to get my vote and my limited monitary support than any hard line on canabis.

Not a good sign – Tony is one of the last really honorable men I know in politics – if he’s hanging it up, it’s probably because he smells something rotten going on in the party/process he doesn’t want clinging to him – he values his reputation.
