Bernier quits: How Scheer could have kept “Mad Max” in the Conservative Party

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I offered Conservative Party leader Andrew Scheer advice on how to handle Maxime Bernier, to everyone's advantage. Today, Bernier announced his resignation from the party, but that could have been avoided...

@SONNY CROCKETT . . . . You are correct, the vast majority of Canadians today are complacent, comfortable and happy on the road to failure . . .

One day Canadians will want their “Trump” . . . but I content that by then it will be too late, we will resemble France, Belgium or Sweden and options will be few.

But that would not be Bernier’s party. He is a libertarian and big supporter of free trade agreements. His main beef with CPC was his opposition to protections for dairy farmers. In other words, he thought CPC was not globalist enough.

Being opposed to trade agreements does not make one a globalist necessarily. It means getting rid of subsidies that unnaturally favour a small group of producers over a huge group of consumers. Usually for vote buying purposes.

The Smiling Chipmunk screwed Conservatives with his take on the Paris Accord and hasn’t looked back since… That’s all I want to know about this man…

Not by popular vote, no, but popular vote majorities are rare federally – you have to go back to Mulroneys’ first term to find one, and even that was only by a few thousand votes nationally.. I use the term here, as most do, to refer to the concept of a majority government, which refers to seat count not vote.

Free trade and big trade agreements are two different animals. The way Trump has knocked the air out of the big ones means we have to rethink how we do business also. I am against the big trade agreements, but what I hate most is that they morph into corporate controlled social engineering projects and I don’t think anyone who says Canada is suffering from ‘extremist multiculturalism’ would be overlooking that fact or the obvious root causes for such affronts to our country’s sovereignty, George.

I guess we’ll see what Bernier can accomplish before an election, and if one is called in the next few weeks, at least a fire has been set under Scheer’s ass. If Justin were to get in, it would not be a majority government. The status quo with the existing parties won’t work anymore. CPC is too far left now to be a decent alternative, or properly represent conservative values. They need to get ‘right’ or they risk an alternative replacing them. With Bernier fully regrouped with a new party, he will be poised to upstage Scheer and the cpc. Its just a matter of time, Under what circumstances is anyone’s guess. But its high time Canada had a party the globalists couldn’t push around. God willing it will happen before Canada is too far gone.

One thing for sure, I will never believe a word out of Scheer’s mouth ever again, and he can take full credit for that himself. The party needs to consider whether he should be leading them into an election at all.

“The Goal Is To Start A New Party

When questioned by reporters about his future plans, the Quebec MP claimed he intends on keeping his seat in parliament and will be announcing the launch of a new party in the upcoming few weeks.

“The goal is to start a new party,” said Maxime Bernier “I am starting that conversation right now”.

Bernier announced that he made the decision to start a new party after “discussion with Andrew Scheer nine days ago”.

“It was not only the one conversation” that made him leave according to Bernier.

“I am predicting that the new party will win the election” said Maxime Bernier "

" It is more than a year to the next federal election…"

Maybe Andy Neimer. It could be called anytime now. Bernier needs to explain his intentions pronto, no ‘couple of weeks’ to wait. The CPC need to address this to the satisfaction of the voting public. We have to decide what to do with our vote. It still looks like there are only two choices. Stay home or vote for Scheer. What path is there for Bernier unless he replaces Scheer, or sits it out till next year?
Damn Scheer anyway for being such a feckless liar. He did lie to us as soon as he got in. He backtracked on all that was important to his base to satisfy the few cino’s and the media pulling his strings. meh!

Justin Trudope is a Circus . . . .
Andrew Scheer is a Clown . . . .

I have refused to donate to the Conservatives since they made this dope leader . . . Leitch was my pick . . . she had “balls” unlike Justin & Andrew !

At the end of the day, people will vote with their wallets, and for the person who will best protect their security and well-being. They also want a strong leader who is not politically correct at the expense of what is best for Canadians.
commented 2018-08-24 08:47:57 -0400
Conservative Bernier will stand up for Canadians, Progressive Scheer won’t. End of story.
You can’t reconcile Bernier’s patriotism with Scheer’s globalism, polar opposites.
Perhaps Bernier will give Canada it’s first real Conservative party in decades.

When Smilin’ Andy was elected Conservatives has no idea he would support the Paris Climate Accord or M-103. It is time for a leadership review. Smilin’ Andy has a lot of splainin to do.

The CPC made a bad hire, it is time to correct the mistake before it is too late.
commented 2018-08-24 05:31:00 -0400
This could be a game of chicken. Max has threatened to set up his own party. The Conservatives have a leader who, I suspect, is disliked by a majority of the party. The CPC has a choice, dump Scheer now and pick a new leader or face the prospect of a split vote come election time. I think I know what most Conservatives want. The best decision the Ontario PCs ever made was firing Brown.

Sonny Crockett said “Conservatives voted for him to be leader”,

Isn’t that exactly what I just said? I also said they made a big mistake when they did. Thanks for the redundancy, Captain Obvious.
commented 2018-08-24 03:03:10 -0400
Sonny Crockett right , but you do not understand socially liberal since you think the Liberal party is that. They are far left socially and nothing liberal about them. m-103 is not liberal.
commented 2018-08-24 03:02:22 -0400
Sonny , yes he is a libertarian with a lot of good conservative ideas and beliefs . I guess when I split hairs with the many forms of liberalism such as communists , socialists and globalists I should remember there are many definitions of conservatism .
commented 2018-08-24 02:49:59 -0400
As I posted before:- Let’s all “cool our jets” for a few weeks and see what Bernier comes up with… That’s only fair… It is more than a year to the next federal election; more than enough time to form a new conservative party and articulate what they stand for… As I posted elsewhere, if it is indeed true that Scheer refused to talk to Bernier in the nine days leading up to the Halifax Convention, then that tells me all I want to know about The Smiling Chipmunk…

Brian Christiansen I agree… His website is a very good representation of his values.. he is a libertarian not a liberal and there is a big difference.

Visit Maxime Bernier website and he actually has a lot of common sense and intelligence on a lot of pretty important issues that pertain to all the problems the liberals , communists , socialists and globalists are perpetuating on Canadians . He is definitely conservative in all his views and that’s something that the CPC will miss . But it is what it is and a person can never be too informed otherwise you become a liberal with the motto Ingnorance is Bliss !

Mr. Levant – Good presentation & good advice for Mr. Scheer. Unfortunately, I think you’re whistling in the dark. Trudeau will win the next election (in light of Mr. Bernier’s resignation today). Even should Scheer pull off a miracle & win, things will not change for conservatives here in this banana republic. It appears to me that Scheer even tries to mimic Trudeau’s style, in order to appear more acceptable to those who hate him. He is gutless, & will bend over backwards to the point of selling out conservatives, whether it be family values, freedom of religion, gun rights, etc. I actually considered voting again, should Bernier win the party leadership . The last time I voted federally was during the Reform Party era. People have said that, if I don’t vote, I shouldn’t be critiquing the politicians. I expect to hear more of that. However, there’s no one of any stature in the political field worthy of my effort to drive to a polling station .
