What's unclear is how seriously Scheer's team is taking the anger felt by senior Tories after Monday's disappointing election loss — or if anyone will step up to challenge the Conservative leader.

The Star spoke to several Conservative insiders, some connected to the Scheer campaign and some on the outside, who agreed to speak about internal party matters on condition they not be named.

What emerged from those conversations is a deep disappointment with the campaign's performance in central and eastern Canada, anger with Scheer's inner circle, and the belief that Scheer will have to work hard to survive a mandatory leadership review in April.
