While Maxime Bernier, who placed second, quit and formed his own party, and fourth-place Brad Trost was forced to fight for a new nomination to run again as an MP, which he lost, O'Toole was rewarded with the plum post of foreign affairs critic.

He used it to keep building a brand, becoming a hawk on China policy and an early adopter of the right wing's aversion to what became known as "cancel culture," a movement that broadly refers to historical or contemporary figures being shunned for their actions or opinions.

Taking that road helped O'Toole build the connections in the party's more right-wing camps and he would spend this leadership campaign leaning on them.
