Hunt begins for new leader of P.E.I. PC Party: Nominations now open

P.E.I.'s PC Party started taking nominations for a new leader today. 

The leader will be chosen on the evening of Friday, October 20 — the day nominations close. 

The last permanent leader of the PC Party was Rob Lantz, who failed to win his seat in the 2015 election.

Jamie Fox has been the interim leader of the party since then.
