On yesterday's edition of The Ezra Levant Show, Ezra broke down the results of the Conservative Party of Canada's leadership campaign.
First up was Peter MacKay: the man Ezra was glad to see not win the party leadership, as he would spend his time pursuing the fool's errand of trying to win over Liberal voters — voters who are more than fine with Justin Trudeau.
Derek Sloan was a "master of conservative policy," Ezra said, and hoped Erin O'Toole would have a special place for him in his shadow cabinet.
Though Leslyn Lewis is not yet an MP, after her impressive performance, Ezra thought it would be more important for her to continue to try to expand her brand of conservatism until there's a chance to snag a seat. Much of her life is built around Toronto, but as Ezra suggested, surely she "could win any riding in Saskatchewan, don't you think?"
There could be an opening for a seat in Regina, after all.
As for Erin O'Toole, Ezra took a wait-and-see approach, saying:
Look I'm going to be hopeful for now. The party dodged a big bullet by not voting for Peter MacKay, and Erin O'Toole is saying the right things. That's not bad — a good place to start. He's not a rockstar — OK.
He was a Harper cabinet minister who's name you probably forgot. He came in third in the race to replace Stephen Harper last time — he lost to Scheer and Maxime Bernier — so he's the party's second, third, fourth or fifth choice.
Alright, fine, it's not your first round draft pick. But he's better than Trudeau. I would take a 10th round draft pick if he's a conservative instead of Trudeau.
