What Conservative Has the Highest Profile Today? It Sure Isn't O'Toole.
Judging by what I've been reading in Macleans and elsewhere, Stephen Harper dominates Canada's media. The leader of the opposition, Erin O'Toole, has become an afterthought.
Macleans did O'Toole no favours by publishing Paul Wells' article claiming that if Harper took the Cons into the next election he'd whittle the Liberals' advantage to next to nothing.
Now when Harper appears on some American podcast criticizing the Trudeau government's response to the Covid pandemic as "overkill" it's in all the funny papers.
The media message to the Conservative faithful is 'You've got the wrong man. You can't win with losers like Scheer and O'Toole."
