Leslyn Lewis asks potential supporters if they believe that Canada is ready for someone who doesn’t fit the mold of a “normal politician.” The Conservative leadership candidate says she has been told that she can’t win because she isn’t a sitting MP; because Canada isn’t ready for a Black prime minister, and because politics is a man’s game. Lewis’s campaign is like a bumblebee – the laws of aerodynamics suggest it shouldn’t be able to get off the ground. Yet, the candidate is flying anyway.
