In the first weeks of the 2019 election, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer received an unexpected gift: images, then a video, showing a younger Justin Trudeau wearing blackface makeup, which as Trudeau explained on the Radio-Canada Sunday night talk show Tout le monde en parle, caused grief and sorrow among supporters he spoke to -- leading to apologies that could not erase the hurt and disappointment the Trudeau actions had caused.

With Prime Minister Trudeau personally weakened in visible minority communities where his party has historically dominated, the election campaign had turned into an opportunity for other political leaders.

Fortunately for the Liberals, the Conservative Party had given them an unexpected gift as well -- a big one: Andrew Scheer as leader.
