Saskatchewan MP Brad Trost has thrown his hat in the ring for the Conservative Party leadership, strangely making the announcement while on vacation in Mongolia of all places.
Trost’s entry marks the 6th person to make their bid for leader of the opposition and he will be defending the party’s right flank.
A man who once described himself as to the right of Atilla the Hun, Trost will undoubtedly be campaigning on a social conservative platform.
The Conservative Party has a chance to capitalize on the discontent fuelled by stagnating wages, less opportunity for the middle class and sky high real estate prices, but we have to push the appeal towards young people.
Watch as I give my take on Trost’s entry into the race as a 30 year old millennial who lives in a major urban area like Vancouver.
