No, Canada doesn’t need a second conservative party

There’s nothing novel about a bunch of politicos getting together at a bar to complain about their own party. Yet, for some reason, we’re supposed to think Scott Gilmore’s New Conservative movement is something different.

Last month, the Maclean’s columnist and card-carrying Tory announced he was embarking on a cross-country tour of Canada to talk to Conservatives about whether they want to reboot their party or even create a new one.

They’re all sold-out and the first event is on Monday in Halifax with the second one coming to Toronto on Tuesday.

We have a conservative party? Gilmore is a liberal in sheep’s clothing.
