Pierre Poilievre Won Easily. He Can Easily Win Again.: Chris Selley, National Post, Sept. 10, 2022 — If there’s one thing that Pierre Poilievre’s fans and detractors tend to agree on — including many within the Conservative Party of Canada, of which he easily became leader on Saturday evening; 68 per cent on the first ballot! — it’s that the gentleman is not for turning.
