ANALYSIS: The federal Conservatives are a unique coalition of disparate interest groups. Which candidate can bring them all together?
It never ceases to amaze me how cruel and fickle politics can be.
You already know that Conservative leader Andrew Scheer won the most votes (although not the most seats) in the federal election last October.
But did you also know that the 6.15 million votes he earned was the second-highest vote total of any Conservative party leader ever — exceeded only by Brian Mulroney’s 6.2 million votes in his 1984 historic landslide?
And, yet, Scheer is on his way out, and the race to replace him is on and will be decided at a leadership election in Toronto on June 27.
