Andrew Scheer, the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, officially stepped down on Thursday, Dec. 12, 2019, after weeks of speculation about his future with the party.
His decision comes less than two months after a disappointing election result for the Conservatives, in which they couldn't capitalize on the governing Liberals' ethics record and a stunning mid-campaign revelation that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had repeatedly dressed up in blackface and brownface as a younger man.
As social media bubbled with talk about potential successors to Scheer, Barrett offered no hints as to which potential leadership candidate he might support.
Bernier, who left the Conservative Party to form the People's Party of Canada, said in a tweet there was "zero chance" that he will run again for the party leadership.
Scheer will stay on as the party's leader until a leadership convention is held.

"I can really appreciate where he's coming from", Doherty said from Ottawa.
Mr. Scheer won the leadership of the party in 2017.
"I felt it was time to put my family first", Scheer, a father of five, said when he announced his decision.
Although it's too early to say who could be the next party leader, McColeman said one current MP can be ruled out. But he has faced growing calls for his resignation, including from senior conservative organizers, such as former aide to Stephen Harper, Corey Tenace and Jeff Ballingall who stood at the head of such organizations as Ontario Proud, and who organized an online campaign called Conservative Victory to convince Shira to go. "There are times when the House shows great compassion and honour and respect", said McLeod. "We certainly were never asked to approve it which I would not have".
