The Leadership Election Organizing Committee (LEOC) met via teleconference last night to discuss the evolving situation around COVID-19 and how it may affect our Leadership race.
The LEOC also approved adding an online portal for campaigns to utilize for submitting membership endorsement signatures, alleviating concerns about collecting signatures in person.
As Canada’s Official Opposition party, we have an important role in our democracy, and we owe it to Canadians to have the new Leader of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition in place under the timelines we’ve announced. It’s important to the integrity of our process, and it’s important that we are able to hold the government to account, providing a voice for Canadians, especially in trying times such as what we’re currently witnessing taking place in this country.
