Itís time for Pierre Poilievre to get serious and stop giving oxygen to Conservativesí furious fringe

In his quest for the national Conservative leadership it seems there are no limits on what Poilievre is prepared to say to curry favour with the angry anti-vax constituency in his party, the same people prone to disappear down the rabbit hole of conspiracy theories about globalist plots to run the world.
How much of what heís saying now is based on sincere belief, and how much is just a cynical bid for votes among the Conservativesí furious fringe?
But at the moment he is riding a tiger. It looks like itís carrying him to the Conservative leadership, but heís feeding forces that he may not be able to control down the road.

Itís time for Poilievre to get serious and make clear where he stands on all this. Becoming leader of one of the countryís national parties carries with it great responsibility. Fuelling fringe theories and casting doubt on whether he would fight a future pandemic fails that test spectacularly.
