The topics included climate change, coastal/ocean access, forestry/pump mills, indigenous affairs, housing, money laundering, issues of CCP criticism & racism, along with the problem of cancel culture and restrictions on free speech in Canada. An additional question addressed Trudeau’s new $343 billion deficit & economic recovery.

Conservative leadership debate offers a chance for undecided voters to learn more

With very distinct campaigns from one another, this debate should be an interesting watch, even despite Peter MacKay not showing up, there will be a lot of Conservative members watching trying to decide who they want on the top of their ballots.

Don’t speak French? Here’s what you missed in the French CPC debate.

For the second half of the debate, O’Toole made himself look more progressive than MacKay. He kept on repeating that he was proud to have been one of the few conservative MP’s that supported the 2013 transgender bathroom bill, and called MacKay transphobic for not supporting the NDP legislation. This is the same Erin O’Toole who told social conservative voters last week that he should be their second choice.

Rookie Derek Sloan Emerges Strong from CPC Debates

It’s time for the Conservative party to adapt to the times, and when I say that, I don’t mean need changing social or fiscal issues policies.

What we need to be asking ourselves as conservatives are, yes, who best represents our values, but also who can best present those values on camera? This may sound like a shallow concern; however, it is not. We need to heed the lessons of 2016 Donald Trump in the states and 2019 re-election of Trudeau over Andrew Scheer.

In both of these elections, a critical factor with the winning party was their leader’s ability to perform or ‘act’ on TV: it’s no secret that one of the only things Trudeau can do correctly is hair flips on television, and it’s undeniable the decades of being a reality TV star gave Trump the edge over his opponents in 2016.
