Insiders Say Harper's Fingerprints Are All over Leadership Race - 2020-05-15
The hapless remnants of the Harper Party never learn.
Trailing the Liberals by 10 points in this week's political tracking report from pollster Nik Nanos, the Conservative Party of Canada is once again bungling its way through its latest search for a winner at the box office.
The CPC is supposed to be doing some soul-searching in the process of its 2020 leadership race. In 2017, the last time the party went searching for its soul, it came back with Andrew Scheer. The karaoke Stephen Harper.
Again in 2020, they have headed straight back to the vacant parking lot of Harper's political vision — the CPC as archly socially conservative, northern Republican, anti-environment, pro-oil and meaner than ever.
