After their latest election loss, Canada’s Conservatives are discovering that they simply don’t have what Stephen Harper and Brian Mulroney once relied on to win federal elections. And Erin O’Toole’s shape-shifting, from a hard-right leadership candidate to a Liberal-lite campaigner, clearly didn’t prove to be the path to victory. Tasha Kheiriddin, national politics columnist for Postmedia, joins Anthony to discuss how the Tories are missing opportunities to connect with many voters naturally inclined to support a conservative vision for Canada. And the dangers that lie ahead for the party if it doesn’t learn the right lessons, fast. (Recorded October 6, 2021)
