Probably the last thing the Conservative Party of Canada needs right now is a side battle over allegations of dirty tricks and data theft between the campaigns of the two leading candidates in an already uninspiring leadership race.

I mean, it's not as if frontrunners Peter MacKay or Erin O'Toole are the sort of leaders that stir the blood sufficiently to arouse passionate support among people who normally don't make a habit of voting Conservative.

About the best either of them could have hoped for was to generate a leadership contest with enough suspense to give the impression of a real race for a prize worth winning and then wait prayerfully for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to mess up again like he almost did last year.
