A Trudeau cabinet minister’s husband wants to start a new conservative party — to split the Right

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

The Liberals have a plan to win again in 2019: Get back to the glory days of splitting the Right, by creating a hoax party.

In Maclean’s, Scott Gilmore wrote a column called “Confessions of a Self-Loathing Tory.”

Gilmore is the house-husband of Catherine McKenna, Trudeau’s far-left Environment Minister, and he's isn’t not really conservative. He writes:

"While the majority of naturally conservative voters welcome refugees, believe in climate change, and don’t care if the neighbour smokes weed, the majority of leadership candidates are actively opposed to all those things.”

Um, nope. Even most Liberals now oppose Trudeau’s open-borders approach, in poll after poll.

It’s weird enough that Maclean’s gives a federal politics column to the husband of a Liberal cabinet minister. But now the magazine is also helping promote Gilmore’s new initiative:

He’s starting a fake conservative party, to split the right-wing vote.

If Gilmore really wants to change the direction of the Conservative Party, why isn't he running for the leader of it? There’s a leadership race on right now.

I’ve decided not to endorse anyone for the Conservative leadership. But whoever is chosen, the choice should be made by conservatives.

Not Maclean’s, and not the house-husband of a Liberal cabinet minister.

NEXT: Days after his election, during his first phone call with President Obama, Justin Trudeau declared that he was withdrawing Canadian fighter jets from the fight against ISIS.

Tonight, Sun columnist Anthony Furey comes on to talk about Access to Information documents that reveal that Iraqis wanted our CF18s to stay in the theatre of war. 

THEN: For the first time in 20 years, Professor Jordan Peterson's research grant application has been denied. Given Peterson's outspoken opinions about freedom of speech and political correctness, it's hard not to assume that this denial was politically motivated.

We've decided to help Professor Peterson crowdfund his important research. Tonight I'll make my case, and Peterson will explain what this research entails. To learn more about his project, how you can help and more, please visit SupportPetersonResearch.com.

FINALLY: I read your messages to me!

Liza, I think you’re right. It means a lot to me if CPC candidates go on the Rebel or even more meaningful if they show up to a Rebel event or protest. I have to say the candidates that do not show up give the impression they do not want to be associated with us. That should speak volumes to Rebel voters.

What is the liberals logic? Do they really think disgruntled liberals will vote for the ‘new conservatives’? True blue conservatives won’t consider it. The best they can do is save one or two dimrods from moving over to the conservatives. It will have to be one heck of a con job to convince kids or new voters to vote for this bogus ‘new’ party. Seems like a joke, but the liberals, like the democrats in the U.S. will do anything to stay in power, because they are both Soros et al agenda 2030 globalists.

Its time conservatives learn how to fight as dirty. We’re not in Kansas anymore.

Sally I think its safe to say that anyone who hasn’t been on is refusing to. The only true blue candidates or a shade of which who support us are, Scheer, Leitch, Trost, Lemieux, Bernier, Blaney, and Alexander(sort of). I’m not sure about O’Toole or Saxton. The rest of them are cucks and cino’s and/or too stuck up to come on. They are , O’leary, Raitt, Peterson, Chong, and Obhrai.

There is someone not in the federal Conservative leadership race who won’t come on the Rebel anymore either, but I won’t trash talk him until after the Alberta election.

- The fact that the Liberals thing anyone will take their hoax party seriously shows how out of touch they are. The fact that they’re even considering it shows that they’re starting to get desperate. They’re acting like despots & leading Canada to economic ruin. I can see this backfiring on them – They build a hoax party & attract the likes of Michael Chong & end up splitting the Liberal vote. Even the proposed name New-Conservative is problematic. How long before people call them Neocons?

- So among Trudeau’s first actions as Prime Minister was to thumb his nose at Canada’s allies & aid ISIS in doing so, then flood the country with fake Syrian refugees. I think to really understand the why we’d need to follow the money. I can’t help but wonder if he was communicating with George Soros during this.

- So now the politicization of education has brought us to a point where people who insist gender is a social construct succeed in cutting funding for a noted professor who actually knows what he’s doing & dares to disagree with them. I’ll donate to Professor Peterson’s cause.

Ezra is not going to endorse any CPC candidate. I fully understand & respect that. I would like to ask if Mr. O’Leary has been invited on the Rebel show? If not, why not? If Mr. O’Leary has been invited on the show and declined the invitation I would think that would be important for us Rebel followers to know.

Good indication as any, Lieberals are becoming concerned over Jihadi Justin’s performance proclivities by wanting to create a fake Conservative Party. Why is this fake Conservative not running in the Leadership if so committed?

Making fun of Kellie is dispicible! I really like Kellie & I NEVER watch 22 Minutes or CBC except for PNP (although it is torture to watch Rosie Barton trash the Right).
Kellie is a Roman Catholic NOT a Mormon trying to take away your coffee, cigs & booze. I heard that right from Ms. Kellie Leitch herself.

A Liberal by any other name is still a Liberal.
commented 2017-04-07 08:25:50 -0400
The media, both print & TV, are a little too incestuous to be considered in any way reliable news sources. The Liberals must be getting somewhat concerned if they have Scott Gilmore out there trying to bust up the Conservatives.
commented 2017-04-07 01:02:31 -0400
Too much conspiracy theorizing!… Has anybody considered that the poor sap is simply trying to win “favour” again with Climate Barbie who is evidently in a bit of a "huff’ these days?…
commented 2017-04-07 00:44:23 -0400
Meanwhile, however, the likes of Rona Ambrose, Michelle Rempel, Michael Chong, Kellie Leitch within the party are doing their best to split the party by pushing it to the left.
commented 2017-04-07 00:37:51 -0400
The Liberals think they are being smart and playing dirty. It’s a pathetic strategy really.
I can’t wait to see his numbers. Just another pest, I’ll bet Chong, another cuck cino is ticked.
Good luck Gilmore.
As if.
commented 2017-04-07 00:09:10 -0400
Liar, liar, pants on fire, tongue as long as a telephone wire. What rubbish, as if conservatives wouldn’t be able to see right through him & his bogus party.
A liberal in Conservative clothing.
As for the CBC, if the shoe was on the other foot, they would be talking all day on every newscast about how sexist Kelley Leitch is.
commented 2017-04-06 23:08:50 -0400
Scott Gilmore will not be a problem.Pretty sure the real Conservative party will tear him to pieces when and if the need arises.
commented 2017-04-06 22:27:42 -0400
what kind of husband wouldn’t support his wife’s political career? at least publicly…methinks gilmore is more manchurian than conservative…as for our pretty boy pm…it is very sad when an nhl hockey player in a post game interview sounds more articulate than our pm…

I can’t tell who is the good guy and who is the bad guy in Syria.
commented 2017-04-06 21:51:07 -0400
To clarify my previous post, this could quite possibly split liberal votes for people more in the center who think the libs need to be less fanatical. I doubt many conservatives will vote for them when they push liberal lite policy.
commented 2017-04-06 21:49:17 -0400
Yeah you friggin tool, you will get so many conservative voters with your liberal policy. On second thought this will split votes for the libs, so carry on.
commented 2017-04-06 21:35:30 -0400
A conservative with a liberal agenda. Very clever Scott….. Well i’m fooled.
commented 2017-04-06 21:19:44 -0400
I think Scott Gilmore is jumping onto a boat that is 500 m from the dock. Conservatives remember the ‘true conservatives’, Joe Clarke, Stronach, Brisson, Rahim Jaffer’s wife, and will put him in that company. Canadians paying attention to Alberta know what happened to the P/C’s here: Redford, underlined by Jansen crossing to the Non-Democratic Party not even stopping to say Hi to the Liberals or Alberta Party.

Nope, I think conservatives are wise on this. If Christopher Wilson is correct about the left take over of the Conservative party in BC to split the vote from the right wing liberals, that will be the test of whether conservative voters have wised up.

If any party gets split by this initiative, it will be the LPC because the bluer end will leave, reducing the LPC support.
commented 2017-04-06 21:17:02 -0400
Gilmore’s an idiot .The only people who are going to join his party are people who voted for Trudeau in the last election. This will reduce the votes the Liberals would get in the next election not counting those who vote Liberal and intend to vote CPC in the next election – what a maroon !

LOTS OF US WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO KICK IN $1000.00 TO HELP HIM AT HIS RESEARCH.

Wow, they mocked Leitch’s speech? Holly crap, how frickin low can they go?!?!

Great job regarding Prof Peterson Ezra!!

well, we will know who the traitors are when they join Libtard Gilmores party. Can’t see him getting very far – being the “house – husband” of the BJ queen!!

Reality is stranger than fiction. It would be funny if it wasn’t true. Mind control from Hollywood has warped generations. We have to work on reality

Yes, he’s a liar, but more importantly, doesn’t Mr. Scott McKenna-Gilmore’s scheme by way of a gov’t subsidized magazine mean that our tax dollars are contributing illegally to the re-election of the governing party? I guess as long as no one can technically prove this obvious fraud, he gets away with breaching election regulations and the Act. Only the Libranos can achieve such lofty heights of corruption.

Christian Inkster,

You are correct about McLeans, but it is more appropriate to CBC.
commented 2017-04-06 20:44:11 -0400
What a bunch of garbage. At least the National Enquirer from time to time admits that they make up their stories.
