Michael Chong will only run for the party’s leadership if there’s a “clear path to victory,” a source close to the Conservative MP tells the Star.
Chong, who placed fifth in the party’s 2017 leadership contest, is “still deliberating” on whether he’ll run a second time.
“Last time he ran for leader, he proposed to build a bigger party that embraced bold ideas on climate change and the economy. Ideas based on conservative principles,” said the source, who agreed to speak on condition they not be named.
“Members chose a different direction.”
