For the second time in just over two years, the Conservative Party of Canada is getting a chance to hit the reset button.

The first time they opted for the hapless Andrew Scheer. The choice reflected the mistaken notion that you can have change without change.

Here's why they'll blow it again and jam the Batmobile into reverse with a leader like Pierre Poilievre, Rona Ambrose, Peter MacKay or some other retread from the party's glory days.

And should the June 2020 leadership convention in Toronto turn into a civil war between red and blue Tories, Stephen Harper himself may even reappear. But it must be said that would be the start of a death march.
