Conservative leadership candidate Kellie Leitch is on a crusade against the elites. But it’s not going well for her, and all those letters after her name are partly to blame.
The Prince Arthur Herald has obtained an audio clip of Leitch berating a Conservative Party supporter and using her titles to show her intelligence. Partway into a discussion at an event with young Conservative Party members in Montreal on Thursday evening, Leitch responds to criticism by proclaiming:
“Please understand that I do have 22 letters at the end of my name, I’m not an idiot.”
Her parliamentary profile reads her official title as The Hon. Dr. K. Kellie Leitch, P.C., O.Ont., M.D., M.B.A., F.R.C.S.(C)
There are actually 16 letters after her name. Including “the Hon. Dr.” before her name brings the total to 24.
Leitch was being questioned about her plans to abolish the Indian Act without consulting aboriginal groups by a man who does not have 22 letters after his name.
