You’re not going to believe this, but the CBC seems to actually have some info about Erin O’Toole’s campaign strategy. I didn’t believe it at first, but now I do. And the strategy involved throwing Jason Kenney under the bus. I’m not kidding, and I’ll prove it to you in a moment.
As I showed you the other day, Pierre is much more popular with grassroots conservatives than O’Toole, if Facebook followers and engagement is anything to go by and these days, I think it is.
My first reaction was: O’Toole is just jealous. Tall poppy syndrome — he hates the guy who is more impressive than him. I thought it was just a rivalry thing — like sacking his rival Derek Sloan.
But I have changed my mind, and it makes me revisit a CBC story that I came across about two weeks ago.
Strategists say Erin O'Toole must weigh if Jason Kenney is an asset or a liability
I couldn’t believe that headline. Kenney is still popular with the federal party base. His endorsement of O’Toole over Mackay was very important — I think it actually tipped the balance for O’Toole.
So what do we make of this?
