Andrew Scheer's tone-deaf response to COVID-19 is bad news for the next Conservative leader - 2020-04-17
The COVID-19 pandemic has not been kind to the federal Conservative party. Its leadership campaign is on hold and the official opposition has lost its daily House of Commons platform as a result of a five-week parliamentary shutdown.
At the same time, there are no signs of buyer's remorse among the voters who just last fall grudgingly handed Justin Trudeau a second term. In fact, the opposite has been happening.
The latest Léger poll showed the Liberals at 39 per cent support, up six points from their election night performance. The gain was achieved at the Conservatives' expense, mainly in Central Canada.
