So far, so good….  The Libs are being held to a minority in parliament.  I think O’Toole sees that he has to swing very hard toward the mainstream of Canada.  If they only take Alberta by 10 points, but they take more seats elsewhere, then they can actually have a chance of winning.  They don’t even need to increase their vote #s.  They just need to shift them elsewhere.

If they double-down on catering to gun nuts, social conservatives and anti-vaxxers and move more right wing, they’ll lose even worse.

He made no progress on that, actually losing votes in the 905 area. So in exchange for giving up those right wing votes he got nothing in return. He got fewer votes and seats than Scheer did.

What does 'double down' mean when they don't cater to social conservatives at all? As for 'gun nuts' that so-called assault weapon list has always been a joke in that there are no assault weapons on it. Anyone who calls those guns 'assault weapons' is either a liar or simply ignorant about the realities of firearms.
