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 [...]

And then there was this …

Canada Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government has announced new funding of $8.9 million for international abortion organizations.

A fractured universalism

The pandemic lockdowns had not been lifted before riots broke out across America, unrest which then spread throughout the Western world. Sparked by the stomach-churning video of a black man being suffocated by a white cop, the fires of outrage which led to these riots have since cooled, and have now become smoldering piles of suspicion. In corporate, academic, political, and celebrity [...]

CPC Leadership

French debate During the June 17 French-language debate, Conservative Party leadership contender Erin O’Toole said, “As a prime minister, I will defend the rights of people including women to choose for themselves when it comes to abortion.

Religious freedom

"Separation of church and state!” “Canada is a secular country!” “We can’t let religion dictate policy!” I’m sure we’ve all heard variations of these, if not the phrases verbatim, at various points in our lives. Indeed, the mere suggestion that a course of action may have a moral element seems to trigger knee-jerk reactions along these veins. There’s some truth to them, [...]
