A move by new Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer's campaign has made it much tougher for average Canadians to consult the policy positions that won the hearts and minds of Conservative Party supporters.

Finding Scheer's policy positions used to be as easy as clicking on his website, where his thoughts on 26 policies were laid out — from "Prioritizing Real Refugees" and "Standing up for Religious Freedom," to "Freer Trade" and "Cheaper Flights."

But in the wake of Saturday's leadership vote, Canadians who went looking for that website — trying to find out more about the man who pulled off the come-from-behind upset victory — would've come up empty.
