If Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives want to vent over Maxime Bernier getting invited to the official federal leaders debates, they might direct some of their frustration toward one of Scheer's fellow Tories, who once won a nail-biter of an election: the former MP Brad Trost.

Understanding the importance of Trost's win 15 years ago in Saskatchewan requires a journey down a winding road traveled by the newly formed Debates Commission, led by former governor general David Johnston.

But it's an instructive trip, because for Scheer and the other party leaders, what the commission learned, and what it did with that information, may prove pivotal.
