May 30, 2017 at 9h30-11h00 and 14h00-15h30

On May 27th, members of the Conservative Party of Canada choose their new leader.

  • What were the key events of the leadership race?
  • What are some of the expected outcomes under the new leader?
  • What are the potential divisions? How might the party work through these divisions?

From his rich experience of participation in 18 electoral and leadership races, Mr. Donison will share insights and thoughts on these questions.

The same roundtable will be offered twice on May 30, 2017, first from 9h30-11h00 and again from 14h00-15h30. Because space is limited, please RSVP as soon as possible. We will seek to honour your time preference.
