Peter MacKay is self-destructing in the face of COVID-19. Is he really who the Conservatives want to lead them? - 2020-03-27
By the time the federal Conservative party belatedly pulled the plug on its June leadership vote, Peter MacKay, the presumed front-runner to succeed Andrew Scheer, was well on the way to self-destruction.
Knowing that campaign suspension train was about to leave the station on Thursday, MacKay's team could apparently think of nothing better than to tie their candidate to the tracks.
With the clock ticking, it spent the day carpet-bombing social media with tweets designed to advance the argument that the country could not dispense with MacKay's leadership a day longer than was absolutely necessary to maintain a façade of due process.
