Andrew Scheer to unveil ‘regional, gender diverse’ House leadership team Thursday

Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer will unveil his House leadership team tomorrow in Ottawa, and at least two familiar faces will be given senior posts, CBC News has learned.

Scheer will present a “regionally and gender diverse team,” but he will be partially hampered by the fact the party returned no MPs in either Atlantic Canada or the North in the 2015 election. Eighteen of the 99 Tories elected are women, or roughly 18 per cent of the caucus.
