Being against more taxes and for accountability in leadership seem like mainstream conservative values – something everyone, across the conservative spectrum can get behind.
Or, so one would think.
Joining me tonight from Ontario is conservative grassroots activist Jim Karahalios.
Jim is the founder of two conservative activist organizations, Axe the Tax and Take Back Our PC Party. He says he has been stripped of his PC party membership and dragged through the courts because he wants the Ontario PCs to follow their own constitution and listen to their grassroots members who oppose a carbon tax.
Now Karahalios says his organizations have been blocked from having a booth at this year's Manning Centre Conference.
On tonight's show, you'll see the unbelievable excuse the Manning Centre gave Karahalios in an email, explaining their reasoning for blocking him.
Karahalios is telling his side of the story, recounting his battle against political censorship and explaining how conservatives are failing to hold their own leaders accountable for selling out conservative values in pursuit of power.
