Why did the CPC lose October 21? Don't blame so-cons.

Since October 21 there’s been much talk amongst the self-appointed grandees of Canada’s conservative establishment about whether Andrew Scheer should remain leader of the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC). Most of that talk has focused on his alleged social conservatism. The narrative goes something like this: Scheer does not march in gay pride parades; he believes in traditional marriage and he’s pro-life. The Conservatives lost the election because Scheer and the party are too socially conservative under his leadership, therefore he must go.
