A Conservative senator has begun a petition pushing for a review of Erin O’Toole’s leadership of the party within six months.
Senator Denise Batters, a vocal critic of O’Toole, says he cannot lead the party to victory in the next election.
In a video accompanying the online petition, Batters says a rift among Conservatives is growing.
Batters accuses O’Toole of running a failed election campaign that was almost indistinguishable from Justin Trudeau’s Liberals, despite winning the party leadership claiming to be true blue.
Batters says five-percent of Conservative members in five provinces must sign the petition in order for it to succeed.
