Let's Rebuild the Right!

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

As I said after the Liberals won the election: For conservatives, the main issue right now isn’t the Conservative Party of Canada. The main problem is — everything else.

The real challenge for conservatives for the next four years is the lack of any non-partisan conservative infrastructure in Canada.

What we are missing are the forces in the larger culture that help shape ideas and influence and advocacy. The left has all that in place, in the universities, in think tanks, the unions, environmental groups, NGOs, the media, law firms and more.

Have you ever wondered how the left funds and manages all this activism?

WATCH tonight's show:

I'll tell you how the left does it -- and how we can start to replicate that on our side.

I also talk to a couple of special guests about my ideas.

Going forward, I'm going to put together a proper blueprint, with a group of allies. It’s got to be bigger than me, and bigger than the Rebel.

If you’re interested in rebuilding, SIGN UP HERE at RebuildTheRight.ca and we'll keep you updated as we go forward.

I really believe that together we can fix the conservative movement in Canada.

I promise you I’ll do my part. I hope you'll join me!

Drew Wakariuk is correct ; we should let Trudeau Wynn and and Vancouver’s Mayor Robinson drive their economies over the cliff into bankruptcy. Then ,if we have a Leader worth anything, we can take over. A New Leader is our main problem as there is no one worthwhile in the Party at present. If the Republicans get in the US they will help us, as they won’t like dealing with a dip-stick like Trudeau.

More than anything else I got out of this show – REBUILDTHERIGHT.CA – I got hope!
Thanks Ezra…

Ezra I will support you and your efforts as much as I can. I wish I could do more and like another commentator on here I wish I could win the lottery and finance everything for you. But as promised I will do as much as I can.

Hi Ezra, I’d love to help out with this. Let me know how I can help!!

Sean Penson… “We must regain lost support in the Atlantic region”… Hell; just declare an open bar at the pubs across Nova Scotia and you will have “friends for life”… Having lived there for six years, I can tell you that their generations of dependance have made them open to such vote buying… Yet they refuse to drill for the shale oil under their feet…

Ezra… As an old retired geezer and an award winning “environmentalism” reporter in Southern Ontario in the 70s, it’s at times like these that I wish I had won the lottery and could fund your initiatives… You are SPOT ON!… It is largely the corruption and bias of the Canadian news media in recent decades that has led to an evident “twit” like Trudeau Junior being elected… And, evidently, it did not help that “deep-pockets” Canadians did not show up for the big show in October… Their country club chumminess with left wing Liberals prevailed… So now they are having their “Oh S**t!” moment… Hence I applaud your emphasis on steering the objectivity and direction of younger journalists in Canada… It is going to take years to turn this “Good Ship Canada” around, and it is going to take years to negate the brazen influx of foreign money skewing our political process… As I said, it is at times like this that I wish I had won the lottery… God Bless!…

Sean Penson, please do not use the pronoun “we”. You are the furthest thing from being a conservative. And much of what you listed we real conservatives already do. The left thinks they are the compassionate ones, but only with other people’s money. Conservatives give of their own personal money, we don’t call out for the government to do it (and then think we are so very compassionate like the left does).

Sean Penson wrote “We must accept that there is a role for government in the economy…”

When I read your post, it sounded like a recipe for a new liberal party. I guess we have to define what is meant by conservatism to begin a decent conversation on the topic. To me, being a conservative means respecting all people and encouraging everyone to be productive contributors to our society. On the issue of government’s role in the economy, a conservative believes that there should be as little interference as possible with productivity. For example, it is people who create jobs, not government. Governments role is to be an overseer to ensure there is a fair playing field and to set some ground rules. After that, they just need to get out of the way. With the right encouragement and the potential for rewards, people will be willing to take risks to make our economy boom.

@ SHARON MACLISE – Well, if you are right and they are all the same, then I guess the conservative minded people just give up and let Canada all go to -- in a hand basket because there is no hope. Is that what you mean?

To do this requires compassion and diplomacy, nothing the far right ever exudes. We must embrace Canadian values, not Donald Trump sound bites. We must be more loving and compassionate towards refugees and immigrants. We must be more compassionate to the poor and down-trodden. We must be more compassionate to the First Nations peoples of this great land of ours, land that was largely stolen. We need to embrace today’s culture, not condemn it. We must embrace the legalisation of marijuana and other drugs. We must embrace a woman’s right to choose, as well as LGBTQ rights and issues. We must be more open and tolerant, and all embracing. Stephen Harper, and his base, represent far right values, values that belonged with the old dead Social Credit Party of Canada, not the Conservative Party. We must be more accepted in the urban ridings of Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Vancouver. We must regain lost support in the Atlantic region. We must accept that there is a role for government in the economy, not reject it. We must bring the Conservative Party back to where it was before Harper took it over.

Sharon Maclise wrote “The Right is just another useful tool for a different set of unprincipled politicians to use to climb their way onto the tax and spend cronyism gravy train.”

I have to agree with you. Even Harper, who I deeply respected, did not move conservative principles forward much when he was in power. At least he allowed some discussion, but Canada was still more liberal after his reign. I think the problem is that we have been shamed by the left and we are so careful not to offend so it is just easier to remain silent. This has to stop if we are to have any influence in our country. And if we believe conservative values are the best to keep our country strong and free, we have to push back.

It is becoming more apparent to me that the left is in perpetual rebuild mode and for the longest time conservatives to some degree have been unaware of the scope of the situation and now we find they dominate our society. One thing we can do is to try and enlist the help of other countries who have a more developed organized effort within the limits of the law. If Obama can send his troops to help Trudeau we need to be joining hands with countries and making alliances and trading strategies and services with others who can both assist or need our assistance.

Being an American I hate to intrude in this conversation but, you are a nation of what, 38 million? I find this idea completely doable in such a small population considering the pain your country is already experiencing in the mineral producing provinces.
All you need is a couple of big industries to give a paltry sum to this project and you will have it happen. I think that rather then give $25 to the Rebel a much better use of your time would be to write to the sands co’s and ask them to give.
Natural resources is what drives your economy. Whoever hasn’t figured that out by now is an idiot.
Go to the big boys and get some dough…

“Rebuild the Right” ~ I did not know the “right” was broken. The Right is just another useful tool for a different set of unprincipled politicians to use to climb their way onto the tax and spend cronyism gravy train. How is that different from the Left? In fact there is not a political Party anywhere in this country that is Right. They all follow the same pattern of Big Gov’t corruption that dips into our Alberta pockets whenever it needs to buy votes and pay off another set of entitled special interests. Why would I want to “rebuild” that? If you were suggesting that we build something entirely new that would help us find a way to Separate I might listen – but rebuild something that Harper simply squandered – not a chance. Been there, done that. A waste of time and money.

Great ideas Ezra.
commented 2015-12-18 22:21:02 -0500
Ezra, you seem to always represent the things I feel. Liberals have been shamming people who disagree with their liberal talk for decades. You have to be the hardest Canadian worker for conservativisms and you deserve our thanks and I want to support your efforts.
commented 2015-12-18 22:17:20 -0500
I’m afraid we won’t have the chance by 2019. The Chinese will have controlling stock of Canada within the next year at this rate.
commented 2015-12-18 22:12:02 -0500
I sure hope it flies Ezra, I’m dizzy from banging my head against the wall. I fear I’ll be convicted for expressing an opinion some day. You have friends in high places. Set it up as a tax exempt charity then convince multi-national corporations to invest and get capital gains shelters

Ezra you are spot on with your analysis of the current situation of conservatism in Canada and what needs to be done. Unfortunately conservatives have been approaching politics like we we were still back in the 50s or 60s. The picture is quite bleak and the road back is daunting. But, it can be done provided that there are enough Canadians who care and are passionate about freedom, not just for themselves but for their children and grandchildren, and getting Canada back on the right road.
commented 2015-12-18 21:46:37 -0500
Ezra, I am appalled that all of the media are Liberal, as are all of their editors. So, any great reporter will be cut by their Liberal editor. I have no problem donating to a conservative cause, but I want to donate to a pro active, effective organization. Trudeau sickens me! Why would I donate to your groups, rather than the Conservative Party themselves?
I want to put my money to the most effective place. I do not want to wait 8 years. I am too old!

A famous Canadian Conservative ..really? Wayne Gretzky … as he stated Stephen Harper The Hockey Hall of Famer told Harper he thought he had been an “unreal prime minister” who had been “wonderful to the whole country.” And Stephen Harper is on the greatest Prime Ministers ever"
commented 2015-12-18 21:18:37 -0500
Maybe we should wait, let the left put us in the toilet and not be there to bail them out. Why keep the cycle going? Let the see what happens when the left gets their way for a long time.
commented 2015-12-18 21:08:29 -0500
Thank you Ezra for shining a spotlight into the darkness and showing a way through these dark days .
I think that your ideas are just what the doctor ordered.

Bless you.
commented 2015-12-18 20:58:06 -0500
Quite the ideas you have Ezra! I will do what I can to help. I hope we get the Rebuild the Right movement … ummm … moving.

A copy of my FB comment: The main problem is the Liberal PAC aka the Canadian media, CBC and CTV, the unions, David Suzuki’s little terrorists, AND the fact that the Conservatives did not shoot back when they absolutely had to!!! And we tried to speak but nobody was listening. I was volunteering for my local candidate this election, and I tried to tell her campaign, campaign of Milton, KW, almost every person I could find. But nobody listened. That is why they lost. Ezra is right 100%. We need to rebuild the right at all cost, and sure as hell, Justin and Wynne will give us lots of subject matter.
