The time has come! Rebel sets the stage on day one of CPC leadership convention

Faith GoldyArchive

Thousands of Conservatives from across the country have gathered at the Toronto Congress Centre for the much anticipated leadership convention to see who will lead the Conservative Party of Canada

Saturday is the big day when the votes, many of which have already been cast, will be counted.

It’s a ranked ballot so that means we may see several run-offs before we find out who the new leader will be but you can count on The Rebel to have all the reports for you over the weekend, so stay tuned.

Andrew Scheer beats Bernier in 13th ballot.

Scheer is a decent guy, but he has the charisma of a wet rag. French Canadians, Minorities, SJWs, and pot-heads won’t vote for Scheer.

Which means Trudeau will win again.

Which means Trudeau until 2023, at least.

Which means Canada is FINISHED.

The Canada you grew up in is finished. Welcome to Canadistan.

Well said Evelyn Cooper and Rob Greeley. No more time to waste. time to focus.

Annie… You spin talk like a pro..
And I am not going to split hairs with you… Anything born in Canada is better than Justin Trudeau

At Evelyn Cooper..Agree totally..we have to stay the course of integrity within..But…expose and show the general public the truth about the msm and the liberals at large.

He’s pretty open about no reopening yesterday’s social debates, essentially Harper’s strategies. He’s pragmatic enough to realize that if he touches those, he won’t win the election. His position on carbon taxes is illustrative of the same principle – the tax itself is problematic but he recognizes the need to reduce emissions, since it’s important to enough Canadians to matter.

As for CO2 being “plant food”, so is water, but as the number of drowned plants on my balcony will attest to, more isn’t always better.

I sure hope that Mr. Scheer gets strong, sincere support and encouragement from all the PC Party members and from the many Conservative minded citizens across the country, and we don’t just have another round of egotistical armchair philosophers who continue to bitch and complain, primarily for their own egos; and play right into the hands and strategy of the Liberals and their treacherous supporters. Today some anxiety and fear regarding the potential collapse of our Country went down a few degrees for many folks. Let’s build on that positive outlook and not allow others, especially the Media, to take it away.

“I sort of doubt that ISIS will even be there after the next election”
I fear you may be correct because like rats from a sinking ship and with Trudeau’s invitation why would they stay in the shit hole war zone that they call home when they can come to Canada and regroup with impunity with jT’s encouragement.!
I like your self and many other people across Canada are putting a lot of hope in Andrew Scheer. Time will tell if threats or money will steer him in the wrong direction.

Andrew Stephenson it went down under Harper, and up under Chretin, did you miss that?
And it is a pressing issue to brainwashed twits.

Energy poverty is the number one issue in Canada right now – people can’t pay heating and electric bills in the midst of abundant local raw energy resources – this probably doesn’t effect those living in Mom’s basement cause she pays the bills.

Sheer talks a good line about taking the globalist blood suckers off our energy producers but only time will tell if he has the integrity of his words
commented 2017-05-27 21:20:28 -0400
I look forward to hearing the details of Scheer’s plan to work with companies to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, since it is a pressing issue of our time.

Has any Rebelnites looked at the CHP Platform..I did..

Sheer the candidate of compromise – there goes Quebec.

Sounds like a Sheer Delight, for sure. :)

Glenn Craig, thanks for your post.
I will support Andrew Scheer, and, my disappointment will pass with time.
commented 2017-05-27 20:51:56 -0400
@ Tammie…me as well…but I must say that I have always liked Andrew’s style on the floor of the house…he is Loki god of mischief and has wounded the liberals many times with the power of the joke.

When he said he would defund universities that do not respect free speach I stood up and cheered and when he said the words “islamic terrorism” without apology I knew his commitment to free speach was sincere.

I sort of doubt that ISIS will even be there after the next election….the RAF staged a retaliatory raid on what is left of the ISIS enclave in Mosul…..22 Hellfire missles…one for each of the dead at Manchester. Happy Ramadan.

I am disappointed Erin O’Toole wasn’t elected. I voted him first on my ballot, Andrew Scheer was my second choice.
I believe Erin O’Toole stood an excellent chance in defeating Trudeau in 2019. Not so sure about Scheer. Time will tell.

Andrew Scheer….good outcome

Just as a point of interest, Brad Trost’s wife is Mongolian. I can just picture their wedding day…the two horses galloping flat out….sigh…it’s just so romantic….wonder if they will do it again for their 25th aniversary…..:-)

Miss Stephenson, I would like a sandwich too, be sure not to use too much mayo!

@Anrea Stephenson…..make me a sandwich while we wait for the final round….:-)

Up to round 7 no candidate with 50% – voters were very specific in choices. – great to see a diverse tent but it makes balloting tough, they should declare Bernier with concession from one of the top 3

“Bill Elder commented 8 mins ago

Carbon Tax Chong beat Climate Change Denier Trost. That must hurt!

O’Toole in 3rd , disappointing.
