OTTAWA — The first debates of the Conservative leadership race will be held June 17 and 18 in Toronto after being delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The French-language debate will be Wednesday, June 17, with the English-language debate to follow the next night. Both debates will be live-streamed on the party’s website; neither will have an in-person audience. Four candidates have qualified to take part: Erin O’Toole, Peter MacKay, Leslyn Lewis and Derek Sloan.
