It's a horrible image. Erin O'Toole preening himself in a mirror, and suggesting decent people might want to join his Bigot Party.But he knows that a lot of Canadians don't know him from a hole in the wall, and that he must define himself before his political enemies define him first.
So he's trying to convince people that he's a nice guy, and definitely NOT Andrew Scheer.
But the more things change, the more they don't.
And I'm sure Scheer is loving this one.

As well as explaining why he appointed the equally ghastly Candice Bergen as his deputy leader.
Erin O'Toole was asked what he intends to do about the ghastly SoCon bigot Derek Sloan, and shamefully dodged the question. But the Con stooges @CBCNews failed to mention that. They're big on fake scandals, but on bigotry not so much.https://t.co/btPj7IBEmN— 🇨🇦 Simon 🏴 🌈🏂 (@montrealsimon) September 2, 2020
