JT did not win that election by much.

He was lucky that Vaccines and COVID was a potent wedge issue. I doubt that will track for the next election.

I wouldn't put it past JT to give PP the Stockwell Day treatment and try to call a snap election. The NDP may not be down, they're in defacto government right now.

Yeah the margins are tight, that's the issue. JT won the election in part because O'Toole was seen as going squishy by the hard right elements in the party. If PP tries to moderate his stances, he runs the same risk of alienating the people who carried him to power. I guess it's a question of whether or not PP is high on his own supply and actually thinks the electorate is as extreme as his base.
