To understand the next Conservative leadership race, look to the last one. At some point in the coming year, the Conservatives will choose a replacement for Andrew Scheer. Whenever it comes to a close, that race probably will look very different from the one that ended with Scheer’s 13th ballot win over Maxime Bernier in 2017. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t lessons to be learned from that contest.
