Pro-life candidates garner 35 per cent of first ballot support

CLC national president Jeff Gunnarson said the “pro-life candidates had stunning performances, representing a combined 35 per cent of the total vote on the first ballot.” He told The Interim that having “once again proved that pro-lifers are a large and important part of the Conservative coalition, Erin O’Toole needs to respect their views with more than lip service that social conservatives [...]

Analysis on the CPC election

Social conservatives prove to be MacKay's albatross The two pro-life candidates, Leslyn Lewis and Derek Sloan, won more than a third of the points in the first ballot, more than twice the support than the two pro-life candidates—Pierre Lemieux and Brad Trost— won in 2017. Erin O’Toole defeated Peter MacKay, the presumptive front runner, on the third ballot. The leadership race for [...]

Now What?

After what seemed like an eternity – both the seven-month campaign and the six-hour wait for the results to be announced on August 23 – the outcome of the Conservative leadership campaign should not have been a surprise, even if some of us were. The “natural” strengths of Peter MacKay never materialized as he did not win Quebec as expected, his victories [...]

Virtue of who you are, vote pro-life

Vote only for pro-life candidates I think it’s time we label voters like me and many other “social conservatives.” I would like to substitute the word virtue as the term used to describe a certain political type, a social conservative (socon). In my case, and my circle of friends, it is a much more accurate descriptor. We are virtue voters. A man/woman [...]

Tory establishment does not seem to want pro-lifers

The CPC leadership race may not end well The Conservative leadership race reflects an internal struggle for the soul of the Conservative Party between two main groups: the Eastern Establishment (made up mostly of Red Tories) and the social conservatives grassroots of the party. While these two groups may share some similarities with respect to the need for fiscal responsibility, they deeply [...]

Place of socons is decisive question of this leadership campaign

Best way to limit number of candidates is to require they be bilingual The Conservative Party of Canada 2017 leadership race revealed that having more than a dozen leadership candidates is politically ineffective. For the 2020 race, the party establishment set very demanding qualification criteria: garnering 3,000 signatures from current members and $300,000 in donations. The purpose of the signatures is laudable [...]

Neither rump nor stinking albatross

Social conservatives are an unignorable part of Conservative Party Those awful social conservatives, how could they! They cost the Conservatives the election again! The “progressive” overtures the Conservatives had made on abortion and other issues near and dear to the hearts of woke culture were deemed insufficient offerings. The stinking albatross of the social conservatives had to be purged. With the rules [...]

Candidates ignored euthanasia

Despite urgency of euthanasia, CPC front-runners do not address issue The Conservative leadership candidates have not focused closely on the issue of so-called Medical Aid in Dying, or MAiD (euthanasia), even though the government is debating the expansion of euthanasia through Bill C-7. The two supposed front-runners, Peter MacKay and Erin O'Toole have not addressed the issue. Derek Sloan vowed to "Extend the official review [...]

Why I will rank my full ballot

Brad Trost former Conservative Member of Parliament My friends at Campaign Life Coalition believe that social conservative members of the Conservative Party should abdicate their responsibility to fully participate in the current federal leadership to chose the next Conservative Leader and in this, I believe them to be wrong. In all of Canada’s history prime ministers have really only come [...]
