Popular vote is not all-powerful in Conservative race

The campaign to replace Stephen Harper turns into a party-wide referendum on some of the controversial ideas that were the bread-and-butter of the Trump campaign.

Former labour minister Kellie Leitch has attracted a lot of attention and a fair amount of controversy with a proposal to vet the values of prospective immigrants and, more recently, with an attempt to cherry-pick some of the winning elements of Trump's campaign. But she can only win if, within the ranks of the party, there is broad support that crosses regional and language lines for the notions she is defending.The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright
