Martin Attacks

During a 2004 Stephen Harper campaign pitstop in southwestern Ontario, an intensely earnest woman kept circling the media entourage making sure we were sufficiently impressed with the future prime minister’s speech.

She stood out from the usual fan fanatics because she worked as a pediatric surgeon when not moonlighting as a political junkie.

That was Kellie Leitch then.

The Kellie Leitch now fighting to become Harper’s replacement as party leader would never recognize what she has become.

Talk to MPs who know Leitch and the first thing they’ll say is that this candidate, now fixated on values-policing immigrants, banging Donald Trump’s anti-elitism drum, advertising on alt-right American websites and producing a cringe-worthy video which oozes insincerity, is a fake Leitch.

Thinking about Donald Trump and the way he was attacked during his campaign the comparison is blatantly obvious.… Read more »
