Kellie Leitch: “The Canadian identity is grounded in conservative values”

Brian LilleyArchive

Few have been brave enough to throw their hat in the ring for the Conservative Party leadership. One of those people is Kellie Leitch - a doctor, a surgeon and an MP for Simcoe-Grey since 2011.

Watch as I interview Kellie about why she entered the race and what she feels her personal and professional experiences can bring to the party and all Canadians as leader of the party.

Kellie Leitch is completely inept at answering questions during an interview. If she wants to become leader, then she better have something more substancial. Simply talking about Canadians having conservative values is not going to get her anywhere.

She should just stay at the hospital.

And is it me, or does she just have the worst voice?

It is very true that Canadian identity is grounded in Conservative values. Further to that point the Canadian identity is firmly grounded in Christian values.

And all other values dipshit.

Conservative Politician values do not match those of Conservative public values of being fair, treating people based on inside personality not outside gender, race etc.

Conservative politician values are to be politically correct both socially and fiscally and avoid doing anything that may result in being called a bigot by certain liberals who judge people based on their gender, race etc, and whatever stereotype of “privilege”, “advantaged”, “marginalized” etc.

Cowardice, no integrity and taking the easy way to get elected may be conservative politician values, but not conservative public values

Bill Elder: Thanks Bill. Please pass on the references. Good to hand out to Liberal stooges when they come knocking at the door, and maybe give to our kids instead of the propaganda they get at school.

The Canadian identity was codified in 1867 when the concept of our desire for peace, order and good government first appeared, but being Canadian was best codified in 1960 -

" the Canadian Nation is founded upon principles that acknowledge the supremacy of God, the dignity and worth of the human person and the position of the family in a society of free men and free institutions; Affirming also that men and institutions remain free only when freedom is founded upon respect for moral and spiritual values and the rule of law;"

However being Canadian was best articulated in this statement:

“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.”

So sad “Official” Canada has strayed so far from these universal principles.
