Riding nomination chaos: Is Patrick Brown a conservative in name only?

David MenziesMission Specialist

For conservatives in Ontario, yet more disturbing news is emerging that Patrick Brown, the leader of the Progressive Conservative party, might be conservative in name only.

And despite promises to be open and transparent when it comes to local riding nomination meetings, the precise opposite seems to be happening.

Case in point:

The Rebel was informed that the nomination meeting for the King Vaughan PC riding northwest of Toronto last Sunday had been cancelled by the local riding association.

The reason: according to Roman Evtukh, president of the King Vaughan riding association, there were:

“multiple and systemic procedural non-compliances by party headquarters conflicting with its own rules and constitution.”

Translation: The PC party establishment apparently did not like the choice of candidate favoured by the local riding association, Konstantin Toubis.

But even though the meeting was cancelled by the riding association, the PC Party of Ontario went ahead with it anyway.

And what followed next wasn’t pretty, nor very democratic.

WATCH to see why, for one Conservative, it was déjà vu all over again.

With the popularity of the Ontario Liberals in freefall, why would a Progressive Conservative leader want to make the PC Party more like the Liberal party?

He is so far from being a Conservative that I might have to vote for another party.
A quiet snake – and not just in name but in actions.

He has lined his own nest and in my opinion has been bought and paid for – time for a revolution.

Want to shake this party up?

Vote ndp – it nearly destroyed Ontario the last time – but it would create the environment for an uprising in another four years.


I might have to hold my nose and do something I have never done before………………

These days its not about parties, Libs Cons, Dems or Republicans, its about left and right. Globalists against nationalists, Totalitarians against free societies. The gloves are off and politicians identifiers are not what they used to be. Why are McCain and Hillary dating for example. Why do we have so called conservatives who support a carbon tax, sex ed and one world government propaganda under the guise of trade deals(the TTP). It is left and right. There are no parties anymore.

“…I knew Patrick was a liberal plant the moment he opened his yap…”

Nawww, DEBORAH. He’s not a plant. He’s just another typical slimy politician who will say/not say whatever it takes to acquire and retain power. In Ontario’s last election 67.24 percent of the electorate cast ballots for the NDP, Liberals, and Greens – and Ontario’s energy prices were already going through the roof at that point. So Brown is just trying to bring at least a part of that stupid crowd over to his side of the boat. He figures he can count on rural Ontario’s votes anyways, and he’s probably right.

In any event, the rot in Ontario’s Conservative party is as deep and smelly as it is in the Liberal and NDP ranks. The riding associations are chocked full of wishy-washy fart-suckers, and the advisory staff are little boys in elf suits with poli-sci degrees who spout out crap that they picked up from lefty professors. As a result, the upper echelons are paralyzed by the specter of bad headlines, and as a consequence, march to the media’s drum. The end result? Nothing of substance.

liza Rosie,

If Liberals have been able to infiltrate the Conservative Party and take it over – then conservatives must be pretty fucking dumb to allow that to happen.

This Conman pain in the Butt Liberal has to go!
commented 2017-04-11 09:57:11 -0400
This is another Alison Redford infiltration of a party that is more “progressive” than it is “conservative”. Nobody that isn’t a part of the party elite in Toronto has a chance of being leader and it appears they are even stacking the deck with their plants all over the Province.
Ontario isn’t Venezuela but I really question just how democratic our political party system is when we see deeply troubling situations like this occurring with regularity.

I knew Patrick was a liberal plant the moment he opened his yap, when he was interviewed by Ezra on SNN. The conservatives need to remove this cancer, and elect a real conservative leader, or Wynnie’s evil twin sister will ensure more of the same globalist destruction in ON.

Either Patrick Brown has got to go, TRUE BLUE CONSERVATIVES bail for the Trillium Party or Ontario is so screwed…….those are the only options……Lauren Southern found out that the Libertarian Party has been Corrupted by Leftists…….💔💔💔

Patrick Brown is no Conservative.

Patrick Brown is a dangerous man who might very well continue down the whiny wynne trail.

Patrick Brown is essentially an evil man with fat too many hidden intents and agendas to be trusted.

Purge him or I will not vote for him – I will vote for the “throwaway name” on the ballot – and there is always one.

Brown is the reason whiny wynne might actually get back in.

That and the foreign country people in Canada call Toronto.

“…the people of Ontario don’t have anyone to vote for …”

I’ll be voting for the Libertarian candidate. I just wish the Party would change it’s name. The Ontario Party, or the Trillium Party.

commented 2017-04-11 04:48:25 -0400
I’ve been saying this for months now that the people of Ontario don’t have anyone to vote for .. I truly believe that Patrick Brown is a liberal and the conservative party should do what it can to have this idiot removed . It’s discussing what happing in Ontario.

This makes me elated to have Bryan Pallister as my premier. Good luck with your province. You will need it.
commented 2017-04-11 03:16:19 -0400
Me too Andy Neimers. I hail from that province originally and to see what has happened to it breaks my heart. Liberals are rigging the game every way they can and infiltrating the Conservatives is one of the ways they are doing it. Are they learning some of their infiltration tactics from Islam? There are some parallels to be drawn similar to population jihad, only with Liberals doing the flooding. Crooks the lot of them.

“Is Patrick Brown a conservative in name only?”
And as useless as teats on a bull, just like our Jack Carter here.

Great interview David Menzies. Awesome Canadians.
Both the provincial and federal liberals are as corrupt as any mafia. They have indeed infiltrated the conservative parties. Look at half the fed. conservative leaders, all cucks. The whole country is looking at the same crap if we don’t put these crooks in their place. What a country!

I feel sorry for Ontario, where I grew up, my childhood friends still reside, and where my parents ashes are scattered… “Conservative” Ontario went off track when Bill “Buttermilk” Davis called one too many unnecessary election to consolidate power… Then we had the disaster of the Bob Rae NDP years which should have been a learning exercise for all intelligent voters as to what happens when socialists rule the roost… Mike Harris returned sanity to the majority of voting Ontari-ari-ari-ions, but evidently too many within the “stupid ray” distance of the CN Tower didn’t learn that basic lesson… So now you have Winnie The Poo and the Feckless Brown Bomber vying for power… What a “sad state of affairs”… Sad?… More like dismal…

Marek Wysocki,

Canada has always been a more liberal country and that is also why liberal government has been the party to win the most elections. This isn’t some new revolution.

Hell, even our conservatives would be deemed liberals in America. A fiscal AND social conservative is unelectable in Canada, because Canadians identify as liberal in varying degrees. That’s why a Kevin O’Leary has a better shot at winning over a Kellie Leitch and why a Donald Trump would never win in Canada.

Jack Carter wrote, “What good is it to even have a far right party in certain parts of Canada if you can never win elections?”

Two things come to mind immediately. First, if none of the other Parties adequately represent one’s ideals and values, why support them? Is it all about power in the end? I think not. Secondly, “far right” is a relative term. Canada wasn’t always as Left wing as we are today: since PE Trudeau our society has allowed itself to be dragged toward socialism and progressive values. If it can be moved in one direction it can be moved in the opposite, if there is the will to do so. Having a Party that happens to be “far right” at this point in time may assist in shifting the political-social spectrum back toward the “center” (also a relative concept). And if that happened, the formerly extreme Party would no longer be so extreme, would it?

Patrick Brown is a Traitor, and offers no contrast between him and the Liberals, he seems to support all of Wynne’s tyrannical policies. Brown is a Coward, he can’t face the voters that he has betrayed by adopting the Liberal Platform. Brown is a Tyrant, who will as you can see reign with the help of the Traitorous, Cowardly Police acting as his personal Enforcement Goons. Brown is a Conservative Pretender, he demonstrates no Conservative leanings and switched sides embracing Liberal policies after successfully getting the leadership position. Brown is a liar, and has proven he cannot be trusted to represent Conservative values. If he is still leader and acting like one of Winnie The Witch’s Minions, I will not vote Conservative. Federally and now Provincially we seem to be down to one party to vote for, as most of the Federal Conservatives supported the Liberals atrocious M103 as did the Provincial Conservatives. Non of these fakers are Conservative but Traitors to our Canada. They all need to be gone, they are not fit to govern. They don’t act like Canadians, they are in the process of surrendering Canada to an Evil Ideology and are utilizing the police to act as enforcers, bully the people that pay them and violate their rights under the law. When they are supposed to be protecting those very people from abuse the police are becoming the abusers and should be ashamed of themselves for breaking the law. Wonder what they think will be the end game?

Did you ever think that a true conservative can’t win in Ontario – but a fiscal conservative and social liberal or center left can win in Ontario.

What good is it to even have a far right party in certain parts of Canada if you can never win elections?

Revelation , it wouldn’t be heart breaking if Ontarians would exercise a little discernment and vetting of their candidates. It can’t be hard to check these bozos out before hand since they are so bold in their allegiances. Ontario, like Sweden deserves what they get.
commented 2017-04-10 23:50:35 -0400
Oh dear. The party has been fully hi-jacked. So we’re going to have these Lefty policies of Wynn so long entrenched by the time we build a new party it’ll be too late. This is heartbreaking!!
commented 2017-04-10 23:50:23 -0400
Patrick, if any of the new parties would have a back bone and speak unashamedly as conservatives they would soon have a ground swell. But 50 years of Trudeaumania has them all afraid to not be politically correct for fear that the media will call them names. It would be so nice-just for once before I die- to hear a conservative speak as a conservative and to stop couching their terms in psycho-babble.
commented 2017-04-10 23:38:19 -0400
Only issue is with so many different parties forming will any be able to take on the liberals, the regressive conservatives or the new socialist.

Needs to be a consolidations of powers under stopping Islamophobia in schools, Stop the carbon tax. Bring Jobs back to Ontario and make Ontario a have province again.

Libertarian party or the trillium party might be best bet

Here’s hoping Brown walks over and takes Wynn’s place. I don’t think that guy could even energize the Ontario Liberals.

Andre Lauzon:
I agree.
Brown got in by buying memberships and Monte McNaughton probably handed over his supporters to Brown…because he was told to.
I vote for Konstantin Toubis. He should start up a new party.

Anyone with info/reviews on Trillium Party? http://www.trilliumpartyontario.ca/

My suggestion earlier was the PAFE (Parents As First Educators) http://www.p-first.com/

“With the popularity of the Ontario Liberals in freefall, why would a Progressive Conservative leader want to make the PC Party more like the Liberal party?” Because part of the reason that voters who had supported the Libs previously (for what now? 15 years?) are turning to the PCs precisely because they are essentially indistinguishable from the Liberals. They are obviously picking up a good chunk of the Liberals’ former base.

Seriously, where do the two Parties differ? Not on social issues, that’s for sure. Not on the carbon tax. Not on “islamophobia” (whatever that is) – remember, Brown forced the caucus to vote for the disgusting provincial version of M103, a “we deplore islamophobia” bill a while back, and he’s stocking the nomination meetings with muslim candidates (diversity is our Strength!!) Will a PC government under Brown trim the ridiculous regulations and the bloated and inefficient bureaucracy, or pullback its continued overreach into Ontarians’ lives? Not a chance – Brown clearly favors Big Gov. They would (I suspect) try to reduce the deficit if not the debt itself. They would also presumably be a tad less prone to corruption than the Libs – but that’s not saying much, is it now? So that kind of leaves the energy mess, and as far as I know, Brown is planning on maintaining the status quo (in fact, he might have to given the ridiculous 15 and 20 year fat contracts the “green” energy companies gouged out of Ontarians).

So, why wouldn’t former Liberal voters vote for Brown? He’s a male version of Wynne. He’s counting on traditional PC voters – Rebel readers, for instance – holding their noses and voting for his Party anyway. And the polls would indicate that his strategy is working. Personally, I will vote for the Freedom Party of Ontario, since they seem the only Party who actually cares about democracy and freedom anymore. Definitely not for these faux PCs. Screw them and Brown.

Out here in the country, all the kids are singing:

Paddy Brown
His pants fell down
And everyone could see
A tiny pair
With peach fuzz hair
As red as pink can be
