The 2017 Progressive Conservative Leadership Convention is underway in Calgary with registration opening today.

Candidates will give a final speech at 11:30  on Saturday Morning and the first round of voting begins at noon with results expected by 4:30.

If a winner isn't declared a second round will be held immediately after.

Jason Kenney, Byron Nelson and Richard Starke are the candidates running for the job.

But they might be out of a job right away, or have a bigger job then just leading the PC party.

Wildrose Leader Brian Jean will be extending an invitation, to whoever wins, to a meeting on Monday, to consolidate the two conservative parties into a single party.
