Nick Jarry is the only Conservative who won’t be voting for the party he founded.
The former Conservative MP for Vancouver Centre is not running for the leadership.
He says he’s going to stay at home and take care of his family.
The Conservative Party of Canada will vote on Saturday.
But he says he wants a new group to replace the party that lost his seat in the 2015 election.
He is not sure what it will look like, but says he hopes it will be something more inclusive.
I think it needs to be more inclusive, he said.
Jarry says he will not be voting Conservative.
He doesn’t believe in party politics.
“I don’t believe the Conservative Party is a viable option for a lot of reasons,” he said in an interview with CBC News.
“If we have a party that doesn’t reflect our values, it’s not going to be a viable political party.”
