Ontario is Andrew Scheer's Achilles heel. The Conservative leader cannot win the next election without gaining significantly more support from voters in Canada's largest province. Unless he dramatically changes his approach, he is unlikely to get it.

This is the sobering reality that faces members of the Conservative Party as they mull over their leader's future.

That Scheer is in trouble is obvious. Following a marathon seven-hour caucus meeting Wednesday, Conservative MPs and Senators mouthed the usual bromides about party unity. But as Scheer spoke to reporters, his deer-in-the-headlights demeanour told it all: The party is anything but unified.
