I'm going to do something I have not done in a while and that is to give some credit to Mr Trudeau. At least Trudeau will take an unpopular position and stick with it such as the carbon tax. And even convince Canadians that it is a good idea.

Erin the Tool by contrast stuck his finger in the air to see which way the wind was blowing and then tried to jump in front of the crowd and take that position. He was not trying to convince Canadians of anything. And that is just a losing strategy.

Pierre, on the other hand, has convinced many Canadians of his positions, and that's a winning strategy.

You will find people who will never vote conservative jumping up and down screaming and yelling about how the conservatives cannot pick this guy because he's so extreme or that no one would vote for him. They act as if it's really bad if conservatives pick someone that would not get elected. Don't ever get advice from someone who will never vote conservative, wanting the party to fail.

Pollievre could easily be Trudeau in an election.

I used to like him, and now I'm between not so sure and don't.
Like Trudeau, he's never had a real job.
He's also bound by that sad tradition of saying whatever is the opposite the other guy said.
He was all for shutting down the CN blockade in Ontario.
Funny how hypocrisy is one of his favourite words.
Now he's all for blockades.
FYI, I support neither, and so should the government.

In the end, someone between O'Toole and Pierre.

O'Toole made the mistake of pandering to some imagined middle ground voters. Played right into the media narrative. Canadians are sick of it. I think this upcoming election will shock NDP and Liberal indoor cats. Staying centre on some stuff of course, but as a Conservative leader, you don't need to put on your fancy pants and walk in a pride parade. Don't have to condemn or support them. No one trusts the media so when they handwring and pull out their hair over it, the people will think it's about time a Conservative Party leader acted the part. Just because I don't want my town wasting money on rainbow crosswalks doesn't make me homophobic.

I'm excited to see the Poilievre vs Bernier battle for the fringe right voters. :up:
It's that special time of year when conservatives stupidly act like they're not allowed to say Merry Christmas.

Agreed. It's not that I would never vote Conservative. I have voted Conservative many times in my life (twice to support Harper). I just won't vote for what they are today, and if they do end up taking the party even further to the right and start pushing some populist agenda we may very well see the Liberals forming government for some time.

If the CPC and PPC joined up, they would get a majority next election.
Now with PierreP, the PPC voters that Otoole lost by being flip floppy will vote CPC again.
Some may view my politically incorrect opinions as harsh and may be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing.

Many of the same things that were, and are being, said about Trudeau. The CPC needs to unite the conservative voters if they want to take top job. Can Pierre do that? The leadership convention hasn't been held yet, so it is a tad premature to call Pierre the saviour.
It's possible to do all the right things and still get a bad result.

Why would Max do that? He'll just become second fiddle again in the combined party. I'm pretty sure he would rather be the first fiddle in his own Party.

With Perre, he's got his own issues, like keeping the trap shut. He's his biggest enemy.......and wasn't he involved in the scandalous In and Out campaign fraud? That's bound to come out if he's elected leader of the CPC.

He's been a career politician. Didn't pipe up about coercion mandates that are in direct violation of Canadians rights and freedoms. Can't really trust him, not when it was his job as opposition to hold feet to the fire.

Already the self-professed PM in waiting (no ego issues here), he's going to make Canada "the freest country in the world"
