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.
