Leslyn Lewis keeps moving forward

I'm a bit confused. Leslyn Lewis got more votes that Peter McKay and Erin O'Toole in the second ballot but had to drop out because she got less points. "Each of Canada’s 338 electoral districts is worth 100 points regardless of membership size - a controversial rule in the past for some party members. Points are assigned based on a candidate’s percentage in each district. A majority of points (16,901) is required to declare a new leader."
"Points system: While it’s one vote per member, the winner isn’t chosen based on those totals. Instead, each of the 338 federal ridings in Canada are allocated 100 points. How many points each candidate gets is determined by what percentage of the vote they get in a given riding. To win, a candidate will need 16,901 points."

Although Derick Sloan was a great guy with solid values and principles, I thought he would be knocked out in the first ballot. I figured his supporters wouldn't vote for Peter McKay or Erin O'Toole, they'd vote for Lesyln Lewis. Likewise, if she made it pass the second ballot, Erin O’Toole’s supporters wouldn't vote for Peter McKay they'd vote for Leslyn Lewis. She almost pulled it off. She received the most votes. That point system seems slimy.
