Patrick Brown, the mayor of Brampton, Ont., and a former leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservatives, is considering a run for the leadership of the federal Conservatives subject to the rules of the competition, says a city spokesperson.

Ottawa-area MP Pierre Poilievre is the only declared candidate in the race to succeed Erin O’Toole, but former Quebec premier Jean Charest is also mulling a leadership bid depending on the timing of the vote and other rules now being formulated by a party committee.

“Mayor Brown has been inundated with phone calls from MPs, MPPs, senators, municipal officials, party activists, cultural and faith community leaders to consider the federal Conservative leadership,” Gary Collins, communications director for the City of Brampton, said in a statement to The Globe and Mail.
