Pierre Poilievre declared Conservative leader with 68% of votes

Pierre Poilievre wins the Conservative leadership by a landslide, receiving 68% of the vote, almost three times more than the runner up rival Jean Charest with 16.07% of the vote.

Leslyn Lewis placed third, with 9.69% of the vote. Roman Baber placed fourth, with 5.03% of the vote, and Scott Aitchison finished last with 1.06% of the vote.

Throughout his campaign, Poilievre ran on freedom, affordability, and a vow to remove “gatekeepers” that stand in the way of individual liberty.

Poilievre ran on the principles of liberty, availability, and a commitment to get rid of “gatekeepers” who hinder individual liberty during his whole campaign.

The Conservative party had an explosion of growth during the leadership race with 613,000 new sign ups since February, compared to 169,705 at year-end 2021

Pierre’s campaign brought in 312,000 of the new members.

Additionally, Poilievre was in the lead in almost all polls of Conservative voters. According to a July poll, he was the top choice of nearly half of CPC supporters.
