SCHEER AMBITION: Crowned Leader in a Game of Truth or Dairy - 2019-10-08
Big Oil gets a lot of conspiratorial press. Big Pharma is widely reviled. The 2017 Conservative leadership convention was surely the first to prompt discussions about the power of Big Milk.
So startling and disappointing was Andrew Scheer's victory to some Tories, they floated a theory. The prairie transplant Scheer was in the tank for socialist dairy farmers. Except, in fact, Scheer proved the most popular choice for right-wing hard-liners when their key votes were up for grabs at the tail end of a political marathon for the ages.
And who knows how he may have benefited from never-solved voting "irregularities"? If you are still trying to understand why Scheer is this close to being our next PM, so are a lot of Conservatives, left scratching their heads over how he became their leader.
