Redaction Politics Podcast Ep. 13 – What does Erin O’Toole’s election mean for Canada’s conservatives?

AFTER a delayed leadership contest, Durham MP Erin O’Toole is now the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.

He beat out three other contenders to the post – including one of the party’s founders Peter MacKay – to sweep to victory in the final ballot.

But what does his victory signal for the party? Will the conservatives lean to the right, or more to the centre? And how well placed is O’Toole to face off against Trudeau in an election?

Our North America correspondent Scott Costen joins Contributing Editor James Moules to break down the implications of O’Toole’s win.
