Federal Conservative leader Andrew Scheer is meeting his caucus for the first time since losing the federal election.
The Conservative leader and his party won 121 seats on Oct, 21, a number far below expectations. The Liberals won a minority government with 152 seats.
Scheer will face tough questions from MPs and other party members as they meet today in Ottawa to determine the best course of action going forward.
Scheer has been criticized for his policies on climate change, same-sex marriage, immigration and women’s rights.
Caucus members could decide there should be a leadership review.
A mandatory leadership review will occur in April even if caucus does not decide on a review today.
With Scheer, the Conservatives won more seats than his predecessor Stephen Harper who won only 99 seats during his first election as party leader.
