||When federal or politial parties have leadership races, an emerging hashtag convention for discussion about that race appears to be: Use the party hashtag in upper case with the suffix 'ldr' in lower-case. So, a Liberal Party of Canada leadership race would be #LPCldr and a Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario leadership race would be #PCPOldr. For an interim leadership race, put a lower case 'i' in front of the tag.

||Hashtags for political conventions are often hotly debated as parties and their partisans insist on using one which helps in marketing the event and one which, in many cases, might have to be bilingual, while political journalists and others seek brevity and clarity in whatever language they work in. As a result, someone interested in following party convention conversation on Twitter may have to follow multiple tags. My preference is the party tag and the year in which the event is taking place. So a Green Party Convention taking place in 2016 would be #GPC16. Short. To the point. Unique to the event.
