Is this an all or nothing campaign for Erin O'Toole? Does he have to win the September 20the federal election to keep his job at leader of the Conservative Party of Canada?
Matt Gurney at the National Post joins us for this episode of The WRIT Race. He suggests O'Toole's term as party leader may be short lived unless he can boast "some kind of win", whether that's winning a minority or weakening Trudeau's minority.
"O'Toole is out on a moderate, eastern, centrist Canadian limb for a party whose last 100 seats are a rock solid, often rural, western Canadian base. If the Easterner can't deliver the bacon, I don't think he lasts long."
