We’re still waiting to find out when the next leader of the Conservative Party will be chosen and what requirements will need to be met by prospective contestants.

But we do know that Ottawa-area MP Pierre Poilievre says he is running and that a number of other candidates — including former Progressive Conservative leader and Quebec premier Jean Charest — are mulling a bid.

This will be the third Conservative leadership race in five years. Throughout the long contest back in 2017, I was joined by Tim Powers and Chad Rogers on The Pollcast, the podcast I then hosted at the CBC. The podcast wasn’t running anymore when the 2020 leadership race was taking place, but now that we’re in yet another campaign, it’s time to get the band back together!

So, joining me on this week’s episode of the podcast is Chad Rogers of Crestview Strategy and Tim Powers of Summa Strategies.
