Conservative leadership candidate Kellie Leitch posts ‘screening for Canadian values’ Facebook video

Conservative Party leadership candidate Kellie Leitch took to Facebook over the weekend to post a policy video she referred to as “common sense” that’s backed by “more than two-thirds” of Canadians.

The roughly nine-minute video – entitled “Kellie Leitch on screening for Canadian values” – outlines the 46-year-old conservative MP’s immigration policies that have been criticized by her opponents.

    Is the camera operator trying to make everyone seasick?

    37 seconds, and I just didn’t care enough to watch the rest.

    • The editing is odd.

      • andycanuck

        Yeah, the MSM I inadvertently watched tonight (CFTO at 6:00) was mocking her for that and not what she was saying.

  • The Butterfly

    Why did they post the rehearsal?

    • gareth

      Hah! Yeah, I’m sympathetic to her general point but I couldn’t make it through the video. How many people saw this and approved it before release?

    My 10 year old could do a better job of editing that on his iPod with iMovie. Amateur hour. Who the hell is advising these people?

    The video is a bit disjointed, but her message is spot on.

  • CoolTolerance

    Bad video. Very bad.
    Sitting sideways is not a good idea while speaking to a camera.
    Voice tone: monotone.
    Too many words for nothing.
    See-saw motion… very bad.
    She should have sat down at the desk with a few papers, a pen, a phone, and a family photograph on the desk.

    I like her message and hope she becomes leader if, she’s the best the Conservatives can come up with. But the video seems a bit bland and repetitive. I couldn’t make it through the whole thing. We need a Canadian Trump.

    you can tell me whatever you like but the problems your Pu$$y
    in Cief create will not be solved by replaceing the Pu$$y.

    Woman cant lead, they can manage, are not conflict ready, not
    territorial and conservatism is against thr female nature.

    they always put equal outcome over the the right on property,
    you see it on the playground, in kindergarden and school,
    akademia and life.

    there is a reason why woman dont play vs man in chess and if
    they do they loose, liberalism is a part of female nature
    what makes them inflexible and unable of dissent.

    we have voted the damn conservative MERKEL and see how this worked out.

    Although the idea is sound, I can’t help but remember when Kellie Leitch was selling this as a great idea:

    “Our government believes that increasing opportunities for women to serve on
    corporate boards makes good business sense for Canadian women and for Canada’s economy,” Dr. Kellie Leitch, federal minister of labour and status of women, said in a statement.

    The report, by the ad hoc federal Advisory Council for women on boards, also recommends that publicly traded companies put in place “comply and explain”
    policies that would set internal goals on how to achieve gender balance as well
    as provide annual updates on their progress.

    That “comply and explain” guidance smacks of leftist interference in Canadian businesses and doesn’t sound neither big “C” nor small “c” conservative to me. Has she had a true epiphany and we can now trust her conservative bona fides or is she just in full campaign mode, with all the hyperbole that allows.

    Bottom line, I’m not sure I can trust her. Hell, I’m not sure I can trust any of them.

    Party leader elections, especially when “conservative parties” are involved, usually wind up choosing some affable, patient loser who becomes PM solely because he is the available alternative to some Liberal clown was who has irritated the voters to their breaking point. A regime of do-nothingism then gets down to business trying to make nice with its enemies instead of cleaning out the corrupt stables.

    A general election, reduced to its elemental level, consists of voters being tasked to choose which group of lawyers and rent seekers will have a chance to listen to bureaucrats explaining how their world functions.
