How the Conservatives’ leadership rules could limit the field this time

All of this suggests that the new rules will limit the race to those candidates who have a profile high enough to raise a lot of money, and an organization strong enough to gather the needed signatures, in such a short amount of time.

Not only do candidates need to find 3,000 signatures, those names need to come from at least 30 different ridings across at least seven different provinces or territories.

That requires a national organization, but it also gives an advantage to candidates whose base is where a lot of party members live. Technically, a qualifying candidate could gather 2,971 signatures from a single riding as long as the other 29 come from 29 different ridings spread across the country.
