Scheer's critics cite a variety of reasons for why he was unable to beat Justin Trudeau in the last election, such as his lack of transparency about his dual citizenship and his claims about working as an insurance broker.

But the reason critics cite most often is Scheer's social conservatism which, as former Conservative cabinet minister Peter MacKay put it, hung around his neck like a "stinking albatross."

Media commentators have suggested that if the Conservatives hope to win the next election, they must elect a leader who is capable of communicating a more convincingly centrist position on issues such as abortion and LGBTQ rights.
