Conservative MP Michael Chong will brief his party colleagues Thursday on a bill that could alter the balance of power in Ottawa.

Chong’s private member’s bill, if enacted, would give party caucus members the power to call for a leadership review and even eject a leader from the job.

It would also give riding associations for the various parties the final say in who represents them in elections.

Chong says he has been inundated with messages of support since unveiling his bill earlier this week.
