Who should the Conservative Party listen to for advice on who it should become? My rule of thumb is: whatever the Globe and Mail’s editorial page says, and whatever the CBC says, is probably wrong.
Don’t laugh — I see it already here at the Convention, in the policy debates — the media is encouraging the conservatives not only to drop conservative views, but drop an oppositional tone. The Liberals want Conservatives to do the same thing.
Conservatives will be tempted to choose a shallow Kardashian leader and Liberal-lite policies. But Canada needs a conservative party. And we need a conservative media, or at least one that gives the conservatives a fair shot.
NEXT: I’m joined by “Mr. Wonderful” himself, Kevin O’Leary, and ask the question on everyone’s mind: Will he run? And if so, what will his policies be?
THEN: Brian Lilley interviews Kellie Leitch and Michael Chong on their leadership races.
PLUS: Jason Kenney and I talk about the many challenges the Conservative Party faces ahead of next election three and half years from now.
