Kavanaugh's "smear campaign" was not based on something embarrassing, but an actual criminal accusation. I am sure even you can tell the different between embarrassing and criminal, right?

Bloc got far less votes than the Greens and far more seats, while more people across the country voted Conservative, while Liberals focused on Quebec and Ontario, again.

Seems to me that urban Ontario can go Conservative, but it must be a type of Conservative that is likeable and acceptable to a point where an immigrant would vote for them.. and I only see that when such a Conservative recognizes and appreciates immigrants and what they have given up to become Canadian without the fawning of the Liberals/NDP. If the Conservatives pick someone that cannot make such a connection, then urban Ontario seems to be inaccessible.
Scheer did not have this connection, Rob Ford did, Harper had to hog tie his party to keep them from poisoning good will.
I think that is a factor in why black face "scandal" fizzled at the poles - Trudeau's actions didn't make Scheer more endearing.
Cons/Scheer received too large a popular vote for him to be forced out as party leader, so I think they will go on a charm offensive in a few years (and it will fail) rather than court by policy and deeds. I haven't heard much about shitty things Conservative Candidates had said, so I'm guessing that Party discipline is being enforced in addition to some rabble splitting off for the PPC.
