OTTAWA — Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer jokes in his stump speeches that one of the few criticisms he gets is that "I smile too much."

But in the opening moments of the English-language leaders' debate last Monday, there was no sign of his famous dimples as he turned to Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, beat his palm up and down in Trudeau's direction, and spoke with acid in his voice.

"Mr. Trudeau, you are a phony and a fraud and you do not deserve to govern this country," Scheer said, before turning back to face the camera dead-on with a frown.
