I voted 1. Sloan 2. O'Toole. I fear you're right about Lewis, but I also think the fake conservatives will vote McKay (who is worse) and the social conservative vote will coalesce around O'Toole in later rounds. Sloan is the only candidate that I would vote for in the general, but I could stomach an O'Toole PM.Anybody cast a ballot for the CPC leadership race?
I pegged O'Toole as most likely choice and Sloan as ideal candidate. Although Lewis seems good she shouldn't be in charge. My fear is that there are enough soft "conservatives" who will vote Lewis to try and prove to Liberals that they're not racist and she will force a run-off.
Ideally I would like to see Mad Max do something but the next election to come up (whenever that may be) is not the time to split the right, so it'll be a question of holding my nose and voting "C" (again).
