Did you see the Hill Times story about a group of so-called conservatives trying to bring the Conservative Party of Canada back to the centre?
The group, A Strong Canada, was inspired by MacLean's writer Scott Gilmore, husband of Liberal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna.
During the recent CPC leadership campaign, when the party seemed to be leaning towards choosing Kevin O’Leary or Maxime Bernier, Gilmore tried to create a strange Red Tory counter movement
Watch as I show you who is really behind A Strong Canada, and reveal that they have zero conservative credentials.
Their goal is to prevent Canada from having our own populist revolution, like the one that helped elect Trump.
Instead, they want to take the party back into Joe Clark’s Progressive Conservatives.
And so the million dollar question is, literally: Who’s funding this group?
The worst thing about A Strong Canada's goal of pushing the party to the centre (in an effort to win Liberal votes) is that it appears to be working.
Since becoming leader, Andrew Scheer has slowly but surely moved the party in that direction.
He refused to allow a free vote on the Paris Climate Accord motion; he put in an ill-advised gag order on his MPs and party discussing the Khadr payout on US media; and now this week, after claiming he will no longer do interviews with us at the Rebel, Scheer gave one to the foreign funded, subversive LeadNow.
That would be the very same LeadNow that took foreign money to wage a strategic voting campaign to unseat Sheer's own CPC MPs.
