Conservative Party of Canada leadership candidate Leslyn Lewis has been the target of racist attacks by members of her own party.

As the only woman and person of colour in the Conservative Party of Canada leadership race, Leslyn Lewis has cut a curious figure.

On the one hand, her views on systemic racism make her an outsider among a large segment of the party rank and file. On the other, she's as conservative as they come on abortion, gay rights and guns, three issues that are very close to the hearts of the party's base.
