It’s week two of our Conservative leader-a-thon. Today we bring you our conversations with leadership contenders Tony Clement and Maxime Bernier.

Both men were longtime members of Stephen Harper’s cabinet.

Tony Clement says the Conservatives need to communicate better with young people and is now pushing tough-on-terror policies.

Maxime Bernier is often called the Libertarian candidate. In addition to his support for personal freedoms, he wants to de-regulate or privatize a handful of industries.
