OTTAWA — If Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole has one advantage heading toward the Sept. 20 federal election, it's that he has spent the better part of two years campaigning during the COVID-19 crisis.

The pandemic hit Canada when the 2020 Conservative leadership contest was just picking up steam, forcing O'Toole's team to jettison plans for in-person events, temporarily pause fundraising efforts and rethink their strategy.

Campaigns strategists don't always love deviating from the plan. But COVID-19 forced them to be nimble at a time when there was uncertainty about the virus and its impact.
