All immigrants used to be interviewed one on one and asked about their views on Canadian values. The libs changed this back in the nineties. Now barely 1in 10 are. Times have changed. Kellie Leitch is still the only contender who wants to bring it back.

I really like Andrew Scheer but he will not address the abortion situation (no laws) in Canada, therefore, he will not challenge or fight against gendercide or late term/partial birth abortions. And these NEED TO BE CHANGED.
Secondly, he supports same gender marriage; let me explain. What disturbs me here is if he supports this redefinition of marriage for gay rights, what’s to stop him from caving on polygamous practices of new immigrants.
He says we have to retain our Cdn. values, but since marriage has been redefined for gays, marriage will be re-redefined for any other definition you can think of, including multiple wives.
Sorry Andrew, wanted to vote for you, but no can do.

Why bother? We need to hit rock bottom for the brain dead sheep to realize they are lost. The well needs to run dry, Atlas needs to shrug, sharia patrols must beat up SJW’s and throw gays off of buildings , and people need to be taxed so much they do not bother to work and for the takers to have nothing to take. That is the only way it will change, fixing things up is only temporary and scum like Notley can destroy the year of sanity from Ralph Klein and put us in mountain of debt in a short time. It needs to happen.

BILL ELDER thanks for the civics lesson which the general population, and many of our politicians as well, seem to have no understanding of. Should be required as part of public education system and for every politician going to Ottawa. For example, federal government handouts for provincial infrastructure projects is not a federal responsibility, but they all practice this pork barrel politics.

LAWRENCE, I wish that the Rebel allowed its readers to indicate a “like” with respect to posted comments.

Dallas ,his father was also anti Canadian , he tried to destroy Alberta and the west , he introduced multiculturalism ,he brought in his idea of the charter of rights which lets all the murderers and criminals get out of jail or a very light sentence ,he made a supreme court that doesn’t defend justice but undermines it and has an agenda of social engineering , also his father was a coward and wouldn’t fight for Canada in ww2 ,but rode around on a motorcycle flying a nazi flag ,but this turdo is even worse as he is an all out traitor to Canada bringing in muslim invaders and giving them voting rights as soon as he can and he has an illegal muslim immigrant in his cabinet trying to change a voting system to put the liberals in power for ever ,and he’s so bloody stupid , but unless the millennials wake up their comfortable life style will soon be gone , also and they will be listening to the calls of prayer 5 times a day and their weekend drunken bashes will be no more .

Why is Trudeau is ashamed of Canadian culture?
That we would even have to ponder such a question speaks volumes about the character of this misfit PM.

What we need is a fire and brimstone leader that is not afraid to say it like it is whether it hurts the little snowflakes feelings or not and fix what’s broken in our country.

The federal Conservative party really needs to do a complete reassessment of base core values and get a leader that will uphold those base values no matter what.

But I am not saying anything that hasn’t been said a thousand times or more by the Conservatives that post comments here.

POGG” is the one and primary Canadian value that has been compromised and sometimes abandoned by the Ottawa political establishment.

POGG = Peace, Order and Good Government. This is the introductory phrase of section 91 of the Constitution act (AKA BNA act) of 1867. It is the spiritual sibling axiom of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”, found in the United States Declaration of Independence.

The fathers of confederation did not make this an ambiguous subjective statement. POGG was a statement of absolute clarity used to describe the operative principles upon which our country’s Confederation should operate – it was a delegation of divided power/sovereignty.

It is a preamble statement alluding to the limited constitutional powers of the federal government. It declares these federal powers to be “RESIDUAL” – in other words Parliament only has authority over the powers left to it after the provinces have claimed their enumerated (AND EXPANDING) list of sovereign authority.

Successive Federal regimes have worked to sublimate and remove residual powers and POGG. They feel Canada is a federation, not confederation. Ottawa attacks provincial sovereignty on a daily basis.

POGG (and it’s distinct division of water-tight compartmentalization of provincial and federal powers) is a core Canadian value that needs to be respected again by authority, courts and the people – otherwise we descend into the morass of 3rd world federalism and dictatorship.

@ Jill and john, we need a conservative leader who will be a true Canadian , he will stick to his guns , he will ignore and get rid of the CBC ,he will clean out the civil service from the liberal lackeys and liars but most of all he needs to get rid of the supreme court with their anti Canadian rulings and social engineering agenda ,especially that bitch McLaughlin and he has to be ready to use the not with standing clause which Harper effed up for not using on many of those weird traitorous decisions by that unjust body , our court system is in shambles .that one where the courts allowed that muslim bitch to hide her face made a mockery of our Canadian laws and culture , Harper should of drawn a line in the sand right there .

WE need to protect ALL CANADIAN VALUES, IDENTITY, CULTURE, HISTORY, RELIGIONS , FREEDOMS AND OUR COUNTRY! THIS IS THE JOB DESCRIPTION OF THOSE WHOM WE VOTE AND PAY TO ‘“LEAD, PROTECT AND SECUREHOWEVER IT APPEARS THEY HAVE LOST THEIR WAY. We don’t need ANYONE so bad that we have to completely give up our democracy, freedoms, culture, history, and so on in order to appease. We have nothing but TRAITORS AND COWARDS REPRESENTING US AND THEY ALL ARE MORE THAN HAPPY TO RE-COLONIZE AND DESTROY CANADA AND THE LIVES OF WE CANADIANS FOR POLITICAL VOTES WHILE AT THE SAME TIME STEALING OUR MONEY TO STUFF THEIR POCKETS AND PENSIONS- oh and throw it in the BILLIONS at the imported who demand we become them AFTER THEIR CULTURE AND RELIGION COMPLETELY DESTROYED THEIR COUNTRIES AND LIVES!! I am sick to bloody death of ISALM in MY COUNTRY! I DID NOT VOTE FOR IT NOR DID I GIVE PERMISSION FOR IT TO OVERTHROW MY COUNTRY AND LIFE! TREASON SEEMS TO BE THE NEW POLITICAL AGENDA AND FOR SOME REASON SEEMS TO WORK WELL FOR THEM ALL WHICH MAKES ME WONDER WHAT EXACTLY IS LIVING HERE IN CANADA UNDER THE GUISE OF “CANADIAN”! Most of the politicians wanting to lead the Conservative party in the next election ARE NO DIFFERENT THAN TRUDEAU AND ALL HAVE BEEN WINING AND DINING THE ISLAMIC VOTE. Guess they saw how well it worked for mohammed so now they follow suit regardless of the consequences to we actual Canadians, what is left of Canada and freedom and peace! WE ARE AT WAR IN OUR OWN COUNTRY RIGHT NOW NOT ONLY WITH WHAT IS BEING ALLOWED AND BROUGHT IN BUT WITH THOSE PAID AND ELECTED TO SECURE AND LEAD CANADA AND WE CANADIANS. SO FAR WE ARE ON THE LOSING END! I DEMAND A PRO CANADA, PRO FREEDOM, PRO DEMOCRACY, POLITICIAN AND GOVERNMENT WHICH WILL RESPECT AND PROTECT ALL WHICH CANADA USED TO BE AND ALSO THOSE WHO BUILT THIS NATION AND LAID THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE FOR IT, US AND OUR FREEDOMS! CANADA IS TANKING AND APPARENTLY NO ONE GIVES A DAMN! THERE WILL BE NO PLACE ON THE PLANET FOR ANY OF US TO FLEE TO IN THE NEXT TEN YEARS IF WE DON’T STOP IT NOW!!

Ezra, I think Scheer represented himself quite well for your first ‘introductory’ interview with him. In these early days in the campaign, I don’t think it was fair of you to say he was “wobbly on the some of the issues” and ducking tough questions, including your pet question about having a Canadian values test, not saying what you seemingly would like to hear. While affirming that there are Canadian values that we must promote and defend, Scheer questioned the practicality of such an approach. I think his argument that it was important to determine some criteria for our immigration policy, rather than pulling numbers out of the air, was logical, made sense and could provide the outcome that Canadians want.
I also think it was unfair of you characterizing Brad Trost as strictly the social conservative candidate, a one-note conservative, as the left-wing media choose to characterize him. Just as Scheer pitched himself as a “consistent authentic conservative across the board”, with a campaign slogan, “Real Conservative. Real Leader”, Brad Trost has presented himself much the same, as a genuine, principled conservative, with a campaign slogan “100% Conservative”. A ‘progressive’ conservative party, progressive on social issues and conservative on financial issues, in my view, is nothing less than a half-baked conservative party.
I appreciate that both of these candidates are espousing a commitment to conservative values and principles, which should be a foundational starting point. Otherwise, you end up with a so-called unprincipled ‘conservatives’ like Ontario’s PC leader Patrick Brown, who has declared, “I am determined to lead a PC Party that is modern, inclusive, pragmatic”. He’s an example of pragmatism at work; for example, speaking out of both sides of his mouth on Wynne’s sex-ed curriculum and embracing the notion of man-made climate change!
I would rather go down fighting, standing firmly on conservative principles and truth (such as man-made global warming being a sham and Islam not being ‘a religion of peace’), than go down with a whimper sacrificing those principles by bowing to pragmatism and political correctness.
