Andrew Scheer will have a hard time shaking Doug Ford. He'd better get started - 2019-07-16
Fast-forward 11 years and a similar dynamic is playing out here at home, in Canada, where one powerful conservative leader will most likely have to "break" away from another if he wants to win the highest job in the land.
Federal Conservative leader Andrew Scheer is running for prime minister of Canada but he is also, in a sense, running away from the brand of Ontario Premier Doug Ford — a brand better known than his own and, at present, a brand that is very unpopular.
According to a poll released by Corbett Communications this month, 60 per cent of Ontario voters reported that they are less likely to vote for Andrew Scheer's Conservatives in the upcoming federal election because of the policies of the provincial Conservatives under Doug Ford.
