An internal Conservative Party report on the party’s performance in the 2019 federal election under Andrew Scheer blames inexperienced staffers and a decision to centralize control over the campaign in the hands of campaign manager Hamish Marshall, CBC News has learned.

The lessons-learned report — describes by one party source as “frank and extensive” — was drafted by former Conservative cabinet Minister John Baird. CBC News has spoken with multiple sources who have talked to Baird about the report’s contents.

The report also cites problems with the Conservative Party’s platform, its communications strategy and its candidate screening process, sources said.
