Leadership vice-chairs and National Council
I’m writing you today in regards to a tweet sent out Feb 6 by CPC MP Scott Reid who stated he has been told by multiple Conservative MPs that one leadership campaign is promising nominations in exchange for their support (see attached).
This is extremely disturbing and as a CPC member, I have heard nothing about an investigation to determine if this has been occurring and if true, which campaign team has been engaging in this behaviour.
My question is straightforward: Has there been an official investigation into this allegation and if so, what was the outcome?
UPDATE: Response from vice-chair Dan Nowlan
Thanks for your email and for your support of the Conservative party.
In response to your question there has not been any investigation and as far as I know there has not been any formal complaint against any of the Approved Applicants in the race.
Thank you for you quick response.
A sitting CPC MP made it public that he has been told by multiple caucus members that nominations were to be exchanged for their support yet it wasn’t investigated? I’m at a loss to understand what would trigger an investigation if this didn’t?
