OTTAWA – Multiple media agencies are reporting federal Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer has resigned.
According to the Globe and Mail, Scheer will step down once a new leader is chosen.
Scheer, 40, took over the reins of the party in 2017 from former prime minister Stephen Harper, but could not take down the Liberals in the 2019 federal election, though he did manage to help prevent a second straight Liberal majority. The loss sparked division within party ranks.
The outgoing leader did not visit Thunder Bay during the election campaign.
CTV reports Scheer met with his caucus on Parliament Hill on Thursday.
