Because we need two Liberal parties…

Millennials, boomers meet as Conservative Party-crashers

The 160-plus voters crowded into a Toronto barroom last Tuesday would seem at first to be ripe and easy pickings for the Conservative Party of Canada.

The group included longtime Liberals and New Democrats who now seethe under the much-larger-than-promised deficits of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and want to test out a more right-wing politics. There were millennials who have voted left but are now aghast at the far-left intolerance they see dominating debate on university campuses.

But here’s the catch: These people gathered not to praise the CPC but to question it and perhaps even try to tear it in two.

I wish I could write this off as a CBC wish dream but given the “leadership” displayed by the Conservative party it’s entirely plausible.

    Far more likely is a rerun of the Alberta PC “Redfraud” and Ontario PC “Pat Metu” scenarios.

    there are so many targets out there that the conservative voter is dying to see addressed but the so called conservative party is self limiting in staunchly avoiding anything controversial, float some real issues ; cbc gone, telefilm and crtc gone , improve linkages with northern communities, limit immigration to those who fit our culture and take a harder line on so called refugees who benefit shop country after country before they start mooching here. cut entire departments and prune the hell out of those that remain. outlaw public sector unions and so on.

    • Our political class will lead us down the same path Europe has taken. Enjoy the ruination of a once fine nation.

        HAHAHA!! You’re right. It was nauseating. In fact, I threw up in my mouth a couple of times. Worst kind of porn — reading rhetorical hand jobs. But that’s the Ceeb for you.
