A presumed frontrunner in the Conservative leadership race, Erin O'Toole, released his campaign's promotional video this week. Observers took note of the catch-phrase he employed in his announcement: "Take Canada Back."

Critics were quick to point out the similarities of not only his catch-phrase with those of other far-right political campaigns.

It wasn't only his slogan. O'Toole's rhetoric also included subtle nativist and xenophobic dog-whistles that were common during the Brexit and Trump 2016 campaigns.
