The greatest threat to the future of the Conservative Party of Canada doesn’t come from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberals.
Nor from the NDP, no matter who their next leader is.
It comes from Conservatives who want to be Liberals.
Some call themselves “Red Tories,” others “self-loathing” Conservatives, still others, ahem, Conservative “strategists.”
What they all share in common is that they agree with the Liberals that the Liberals are the natural governing part of Canada and so it’s important for Conservatives to think like Liberals, and act like Liberals, to trick the public into voting for them.
