I’m wondering if the system is rigged, like Elections Canada’s system? If Chong wins, we’ll know it was. I think, that like Belinda Stronach, he doesn’t have a conservative bone in his body! (Thanks to Ralph Klein for this statement about Belinda) :-)

Mailed off my vote today. Can safely say Micheal Chong got NO consideration!

Andrew, buying a membership doesn’t make it legitimate. You are an infiltrator and a phony. "

Not according to any membership rules. Nowhere does it say that NDP supporters can’t apply :)

No true conservative would vote for Chong. There is nothing conservative about the man. He’ll be crossing the floor with Raitt. "

I suggest you read up on the so-called “No True Scotsman” fallacy. Rarely is the statement made verbatim. (What is a “true conservative”, anyway? The Right is so diverse that the term could mean just about anything. I find the Libertarians are the only Right wing group to have any sort of internal consistency. The Religious Right likes to identify as the True Conservatives, but their insistence on social conformity conflicts with the right wing concept of liberties and freedoms).

FYI, consumptive taxes such as fuel excise taxes (the carbon tax is just an excise tax by another name – and they are generally regarded as very right wing concepts. The thinking is, if you MUST tax (and this is very reluctant MUST) then a consumptive tax is the fairest way to approach it.

The Feds can’t actually force the provinces to stop charging a carbon tax anyway as it is just an excise tax, which they’re allowed to charge as per the Constitution. You might try to stop them from calling it a carbon tax, but that’s a pretty precarious legal argument. You can make it non-mandatory – in fact the particular Federal imposition on provincial matters in forcing the provinces to do it is Constitutionally dubious for the same reason – but the provinces are mostly doing it on their own anyway. Whether you like carbon taxes or not, is essentially a provincial matter even if some candidates include it in their platform.

“There’s no such thing as a “fake membership sale” …”

Sure Andy, whatever you say.

“Conservative leadership contenders Maxime Bernier and Lisa Raitt want their party to keep probing who was behind 1,351 fake memberships the party cancelled a week ago.”

“Conservative Leadership Hopefuls Demand Party to Trace Fake Memberships”

“After an expedited review, the party revealed Friday that it found 1,351 memberships were purchased through two IP addresses, not paid for by each individual as required under party rules. Those memberships have been cancelled and the individuals are no longer eligible to vote in the leadership contest.”

No to Michael Chong.

“Unless a catastrophic result happens — like a Liberal in false Conservative clothes wins, through fake membership sales —”

There’s no such thing as a “fake membership sale” – membership is open to all Canadians. My membership is real, fully within the rules of the CPC, and I am fully entitled to all rights as a member and concerned citizen. If Michael Chong is my choice, then I, as a legitimate member of the Conservative Party of Canada, am fully within my rights to support him.

Allan Peterson – just like angry Tom did for junior and the liberals. And now Tom is likely living in paradise somewhere with his cash payment from the globalists.

Hyacinth – I agree, though I keep hoping that it isn’t!

Imagine my shock! Billy Howard the Liberals have no intention letting Chong win. He would throw the election by a few imprudent remarks and a poorly run campaign. Even if he did win we would still be under globalist hegemony which is the real agenda.

The system is rigged Deborah, hard to deny it any longer.
Elections Canada will not print the entire stats from 2015 but what they have gives a clear indication that the last federal election was indeed rigged just as the Ontario provincial election was. Both elections had the highest recorded donations in Canadian history (interference from the public sector unions and third parties with an anybody but conservative tone). So it is safe to assume that all future political elections be they municipal, provincial or federal will be just as rigged if not more so.

I don’t think the Liberals want Chong to be CPC leader because his policies are so similar to Trudeau’s that he could win the next election if one of Justin’s corruption scandals takes hold. The media won’t mind Chong since he’s a globalist, climate taxing, CBC/MSM-loving shill.

You mentioned a few of the candidates with real conservative values. I hope one of them wins so there is a clear choice for Canadians in 2019. If that’s the case, it will be a defining election: globalist cabal vs. western democracy.

Agree. No for Michael Chong.

Brad Trost is the truest Conservative among all the candidates.

He also holds two bachelor degrees: Economics and Geophysics, so he is well educated.

If the federal Conservative party support base wants a true Conservative party, and not just another “Liberal Lite” party, then Brad Trost is the one to vote in as party leader.
