Moen offers Bernier Libertarian leadership (video)

by George J. Dance

May 29, 2017 - Tim Moen, leader of the Libertarian Party of Canada (LPC), has offered his job to defeated Conservative Party leadership contender Maxime Bernier.

Bernier is the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Quebec riding of Beauce and a self-described libertarian. The front-runner in the race to succeed Stephen Harper as Conservative leader, he lost that race on Saturday, with 49% of the vote in the 13th voting round, to social conservative MP Andrew Scheer.

On Sunday, Josh Sigurdson of World Alternative Media reported that Moen had offered to step down in favor of Bernier. Moen's offer reportedly also included calling a snap LPC convention to elect Bernier as leader and adopt his election platform.

  1. Tim Meon has offered to step down as the Leader of the LPoC. He has offered his nomination for his replacement. I haved obtained Mari Haynes permission to nominate her as a potential Leadership candidate at the next covention. It will be interesting to see how many individuals enter this Leadership contest.
