Rona Ambrose set to leave federal politics

Interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose is leaving federal politics, CBC News has confirmed.

The Edmonton MP will make the announcement Tuesday in Ottawa, sources say. Ambrose informed the Conservative Party of her decision on Friday. The news was first reported Monday by iPolitics.

The Conservatives are to pick their new leader at a convention on May 27 and Ambrose is expected to stay on as interim leader until then.

    She’s been a horrible interim leader who’s been trying to out Liberal the Liberals.

    No thanks. Find a time machine and quit effective 2 years ago.

    I think Harper should have stayed on to run things in the Commons while the Party chose its next leader. He’d be kicking the shit out of Justin right now, metaphorically, especially with his insider knowledge of recent (former) Government information.

    The postponed CPC leadership convention strategy for a new permanent leader was inherently stupid with a hoped for fresh face making a big media impact being the tail wagging the dog.
