Matt Gurney: The first question that needs an answer — what happens now to Andrew Scheer ?
Scheer will point to the various things that look good for the party, and say he’s earned the right to stay on. Some pessimists may ask if a different leader would have done better
But it’s harder to answer that question about the Conservatives. I suppose it comes down to whether you’re a glass-half-full or half-empty sort of person.
The problem is, the glass-half-empty types have a hell of a case to make, too.
There’s little doubt that Scheer will count himself among the optimists in the days to come. He will point to the various things that look good for the party, and say he’s earned the right to stay on. Some of the pessimists may begin to ask aloud, however, if a different leader would have done better.

He should go. Face reality. He was a dud from the outset. No dtule. Poor speaker. Not deep on policy or ideas. Oddly secretive about his life. No urban credibility. Conservatives should dump him quickly. If he can’t win with the ammunition he had he never can. Get rid. Right wing shout radio? Cushy berth at the Fraser Instipoop? Lobbyist for asbestos and herbicides.
Needs to go! If he couldn’t win this one, he’ll never win! He tried to sell himself as different than Turdeau, caught in three separate lies/no comment situations! He’s damaged goods now. Peter McKay needs to come off the bench. He’s got charisma, experience and from the east! 👍 Can he just... go away and stop doing politics? I’m sure he would be good at something else.
Canada needs a strong leader. Unfortunately JustinTrudeau, AndrewScheer, and theJagmeetSingh are not those leaders. He won’t win next time either, put someone new in.
