    ... the Liberals are a lot more consistent in their policies (consistently WRONG but consistent) and platforms whereas O’Toole is flip flopping like a performing seal on a daily basis.
    ... got talking with a non gun owner friend the other day and the topic got around to the election. He said he leaned toward O’Toole but “you can’t nail him down on any topic or issue, I’m afraid we won’t know what his views and values actually are until he’s elected and I’m not prepared to throw caution that far into the wind on important issues”.

    That wasn't a slip. That was a lame attempt at covering up the slip where he said the Storm was illegal. He should have just said he had mixed up the Dawson killer for the NS killer, which is what I suspect happened. Or just admitted he made a mistake and said, "no you're right, I was wrong, the Storm is a restricted firearm" or whatever.

    In the end though, I doubt much political hay can be made if this particular gaff.

    But taken in context with all the other gaffs out of his mouth a pattern is obvious. You can’t believe a f’king word O’Toole says.

    If any one thing causes O’Toole to lose the election it will be a lack of credibility. People expect politicians to lie and bs but O’Tooles constant flip flopping is adding insult to injury and a voter who feels you are speaking down to him tends to take it personally. People just don’t believe O’Toole any more.

    Seems to me that O'Toole will let the 2020 Liberal OIC ban run its course under a prospective CPC administration.
    Hopefully someone with up to date accurate information will chime in and clarify this issue.
