John Ivison suggests a new party is needed if Conservative Party becomes fully populist. Ha ha. NO.
National Post: 'The man who would be prime minister [Pierre Poilievre], a putative leader who has promised to rid the land of the “invisible thief of inflation,” is endorsing blockades that economists suggest may lead to a contraction in the Canadian economy and an even greater surge in prices. It’s a novel, if demented, approach.'
'Centrist voters at the next election will have the choice between a tired, illiberal Trudeau government, clumsily persisting on its ideological crusade to impose “equity,” and a populist Conservative Party that seems destined to subordinate science and reason in its attacks on elitism and privilege.'
You say that like it's a bad thing, Johnny boy.
Beautiful. So the Conservative Party is shedding its skin and becoming what Canadians need it to be a: a nominally social-conservative, fiscally conservative, populist party, that aims to serve the working and middle classes while ending the gravy train for the Laurentian Elite, for corrupt Quebec firms, and restoring the concept of Canadian nationhood. Looking forward to having a PM Poilievre.
