SAINTE MARIE DE BEAUCE, Que. — Quebec MP Maxime Bernier has officially launched his campaign to become the Conservative party’s next leader.

Bernier told a packed stadium in his home riding of Beauce this morning that he would run a small government if elected.

He also said he would lower taxes and make more efforts to pay down the debt.

While Bernier, 53, and Ontario MP Kellie Leitch are the only official candidates for the party’s top job, they likely won’t be alone.

Ontario MP Michael Chong has scheduled a news conference for Monday where he is expected to enter the race.

Other Tories said to be contemplating a run for the leadership include Tony Clement and Lisa Raitt.

The Conservatives will vote for a new leader on May 27, 2017.

  1. So far the only thing the contestants in the con leadership race are doing is ensuring Mr. Trudeau remains PM! So far NOT one of them represents anything but continued nastiness and paranoia and Canadians just don’t want that.
