On this week's episode of The Gunn Show, Red Deer-based Conservative delegate, Denton Wierzba, joined me to explain how Conservative MPs and staffers organized against the party's grassroots to fix the debate over supply management at the Halifax convention.
While other policy meetings went smoothly and according to schedule, the supply management debate began half an hour late and was frequently delayed by MPs and staffers filibustering. Despite efforts by grassroots members to call procedural votes to get supply management moved up, the chair never recognized their right to vote.
President Trump has demanded that a renegotiated NAFTA include the elimination of supply management in Canada's dairy sector, but Justin Trudeau and Andrew Scheer are united in defending it. The majority of Scheer's own party want's it gone and he's already lost Maxime Bernier over the issue.
