Some federal Conservative tacticians try to write Toronto off, seeing it as a political dead zone for the party, arguing campaign resources are better spent squeezing out the remaining isolated swing ridings that still went Red last year in more fertile regions of the country. How do you do that? Concentrate on a combination of demographic micro targeting (to boost Conservative votes) and 'opposition research' (to suppress Liberal votes). That means more small-fry boutique policy and more negative campaigning. Yet we want our politics to be more than this, writes Yaroslav Baran. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade

Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer, pictured Dec. 4, 2019, about a week before he announced his resignation as party leader. 'The Conservative Party is not in existential crisis. It is on an upward track. Continuing this trajectory, however, does require that it learn from the Harper decade and from the brief Scheer era—including the deficiencies of the 2019 campaign and the mistakes of the 2015 campaign, which was much worse,' writes Yaroslav Baran.
