Warning: Union influence rising within Conservative Party of Canada

Eric DuhaimeRebel Commentator

Steven Blaney and Andrew Scheer, who are both involved in the Conservative Party of Canada leadership race, are now colluding with four conservative Quebec MPs, along with farmers, to beat their opponent Maxime Bernier.

Watch as I explain how a particular union is trying to increase its influence in the Party.

We shouldn’t be offended by political strategies because politics is politics.

The problem is that conservatives from all over the country are now faced with the sad sight of Conservative MPs betraying their own values.

Considering myself a moral conservative and having looked at the candidates, I briefly would say the following on them:

ALEXANDER: NO. Wants far too many immigrants and refugees. Gets my thumbs down.

BERNIER: NO. Wants to legalize marijuana. My thumbs down.

BLANEY: YES. Wants niqab ban and stronger immigrant screening. Gets my nod of approval.

CHONG: NO. Supports carbon taxes… my thumbs down.

LEITCH: YES. I like all that she claims to stands for. My big nod of approval.

OBHRAI: NO. More refugees? Inclusivity? My thumbs down!

O’LEARY: NO. Arrogant businessman. Embraces LGBTQIs? Legalize marijuana? Pro-abortion? My two thumbs down!!

O’TOOLE: Perhaps…

PETERSON: Perhaps… good terrorism stand etc.

RAITT: NO. My thumbs down for her opposition for refugee screening… otherwise a good stand…

SAXTON: Perhaps…

SCHEER: YES. He has a good stand in all matters.

TROST: YES! The best candidate in my opinion, for all the right reasons.

Good God almighty in heaven above! Do NOT allow any union thugs to get influence here!
And as Andrzej and Gerry says, no more French Canadian PMs.

Same as Steven Blaney

“Pierre or Brad for me.”

I don’t know much about Brad, but I do know a few things about Pierre. He is no Champion of either property rights or free speech. Best to stick with Brad, JEREMY WILLIAMSON.

Doesnt matter who wins, their all the same once in power. Sacrifice all morals and ethics to keep power.We need a new CANADA PARTY that isnt ashamed of being proud of our heritage. You all know the one im talking about.

Somehow I am allergic to another guy with French name to be the PM of Canada

So glad your on the REBEL , ERIC ,a lot of the r o c does not know what is going on in quebec , and it affects us too
My short list is shorter

Point well taken Glenn. Complete support of who ever wins is essential.
Getting Justin out is the goal.

Thank you for the insights from within the belly of the beast that for better or for worse is the political of political change in Canada. Things in Quebec are much as I remember them when I left as a refugee in my own country after the first referendum.

There is something..well two things actually…that I would like to make clear to REBEL readers. One is that Justin Trudeau did not win on his charm….he won on Tom Muchair’s complete lack of it. The NDP was gearing up to form the government and blew it on the niquab issue in Quebec….the CBC later spun that into a revival of Trudeaumania…which was and is bullshit.

The second point is that there IS NOT a separate ballot for prime minister of Canada and everybody votes for the neighbour in their neighbourhood…they DO NOT vote for the prime minister unless they are members of the party.

Pay the dues and get the privilage to actually vote for the prime minister of Canada…..not just figuratively…don’t let the liberals steal the party like they did in Ontario…the general is never the best shot in the battallion so vote for the best organizer not the best marksman….Stockwell Day was the best trouble shooter in Harper’s squad….there is no way he would have ever been chosen leader…but he did a fine job under the direction of a fine leader.

No matter how this turns out…rally around the leader…no matter who is chosen there are bound to be things come up that you won’t fully agree with….there is no way I would remain loyal to the conservative party if the leader and the whip were as narrow minded as those in the liberal party.

Thanks Eric for the info. My mom told me in ’75, “the unions will be the demise of our society” since she was forced to strike as a nurse against the will of her conscience. Very prophetic woman. I grew up with that belief.

The final weeding out begins.
I was hopeful for Scheer. Disappointed to hear this. The Unions need breaking apart. They are nothing but trouble and should go to countries who actually need worker support, like India. Unions aren’t even for the worker anymore, they are a vehicle for socialist global agenda. Scheer and Blaney are making a big mistake. They may make gains in Quebec, but they have jeopardised their support from regular Canadians.

Unions should stick to ‘Wat abowt duh werkurs’ This is the extent of their intelligence.

Have grown weary of Mr. Blaney droning on about the price of milk as if that were a big issue facing this country and paramount for selecting a leader of the Conservative Party.
commented 2017-03-15 19:25:53 -0400
I wish my conversational French was strong enough to get the full impact of M Duhaime in his mother tongue, because it is exciting in his second.

Anyway, thank you for the header on Mr. Scheer. He had been third on my list, but I will now more closely vet his policies. He may go the way of Chong and O’Leary. Blayney was not on the short list already.

“Getting in bed with the leftist unions is a clearly bad idea for anyone calling themselves a conservative.”

That’s just it Ron, they may call themselves conservative but clearly their actions show they are NOT.
commented 2017-03-15 19:19:12 -0400
Good to know, Eric! I won’t be voting for either of them.
commented 2017-03-15 17:49:16 -0400
I’ve been leaning towards Andrew Sheer. I guess I need to reconsider now. I just wish Brad had more charisma.
commented 2017-03-15 17:46:53 -0400
Thanks Eric
I dont know much about Quebec politics, my french is poor. Very nice to hear what is going on in English.
commented 2017-03-15 17:22:36 -0400
Thank you, Eric! You just helped me narrow down my choices to vote for in the Conservative leadership race.
commented 2017-03-15 17:12:49 -0400
Getting in bed with the leftist unions is a clearly bad idea for anyone calling themselves a conservative. One consolation, however, Eric is that I understand that 100 points are allocated to each riding and distributed proportionately according to how the members in that riding cast their ranked ballots.
commented 2017-03-15 16:49:16 -0400
As a union member, I know how the hegemonic attitude prevails, much like Trudeau’s Libranos. I’m also a Conservative member and I hope to rally around the chosen candidate. But if that candidate is someone like Chong (and a couple other Liberal “brothers”), then I’ll be looking for an independent or western separatist party to vote for.
commented 2017-03-15 16:40:59 -0400
Pierre or Brad for me.
