Chris Selley: Pierre Poilievre’s gravitas could be what the Conservative leadership needs

It isn’t too much to ask a party leader to have enough confidence in his party, his movement and his ideas to arouse him to at least some annoyance when they’re unfairly deprecated

All that said, the notion that people widely viewed as pugnacious, obnoxious and partisan-to-a-fault can’t win in Canadian politics is belied by reality. A quick glance around the federation brings Jason Kenney, Doug Ford and Justin Trudeau immediately to mind.

But it shouldn’t be too much to ask a party leader to have enough confidence in his party, his members, his movement and his ideas to arouse him to at least some degree of annoyance when they’re unfairly deprecated. If Conservative members aren’t excited by the prospect of a Poilievre leadership, they shouldn’t be half as mortified as Liberals think they should be.
