Calgary: CPC Leadership Forum attendees lean towards liberty

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

The Conservative Party of Canada held a leadership forum in Calgary recently and the style was a bit different from what we’ve seen from party events showcasing the leadership hopefuls so far. 

Candidates were given time to talk about whatever subjects they chose when given the microphone. All but one candidate was there since Kevin O’Leary decided to skip the formalities once again.

For the most part, the candidates pumped up their platforms as expected, but I wanted to know who people were planning on voting for.

Watch my video to see who Conservatives in Calgary are backing in the CPC leadership race!

With fourteen candidates vying for the top job, there’s still time to make a decision about who you think the next leader of the Conservative Party of Canada should be.

In order to vote on May 27th, you must purchase a CPC membership by March 28th.

O’Leary is a bit of a hypocrite. He espouses free enterprise on BNN, but then gets a paycheque from the State Broadcaster with his show Dragon’s Den?

I am surprised O’Leary is doing as well as the polls show so far. A Feb. 24 poll shows him at 22.49%, Bernier second, as 18.91%, and Leitch and Scheer , 7.50% and 7.36%. Lisa Raitt is the only other candidate in the race really, with 7.29%. Everyone else is doing dismally. Brad Trost is coming in last at 1.79% . For what ever polls are worth.,_2017

Thank god O’leary has shown what he actually is ( a big fat Liberal) early in this race.
But if any of you don’t want him , you had better vote strategically and all vote for Kellie to ensure O’leary or any of the other idiots with Liberal ideas are blocked.
There are enough utterly dumb Canadians that obviously support this goon, that he has a good chance of getting elected.

Not one of them is near enough Conservative.
I fear it will be a few more decades before socialism in Canada has made enough people sick and tired that we will see any meaningful change. By then we will be so overrun with Muslims that Canada will be forced to change its name to Canadistan and ISIS or something like it, will be a political party similar to Quebec is.
Kellie is the only one even close to being Conservative enough to make any difference at all.

Bernier, seriously? I actually was interested in his policies at one point until I checked into his platform further. He is nothing but a Libertarian-Liberal in the truest sense, supply-manage and equalization payments aside. Trost is my only pick, but unfortunately, for some reason, he is not being the attack dog he needs to be.

Bernier seems to be doing well and is popular. I don’t know why. This is the guy that left secret documents in open display at his slutty girlfriends place. He should have been turfed for incompetence. Maxime is a Quebec politician, that’s what we need another Quebec Prime Minister, after all the past Quebec PMs have all done so much for Canada. Trudeau, Mulroney, Chretien, Martin and now another Trudeau and soon to be Bernier. What could possibly go wrong? A short while ago Bernier did not want to secure our borders and scan people coming into our country. Bernier also previously supported the Bloc and was a separatist, I do not trust him, vote him in and he WILL turn on us. Vote for the person that will do what needs to be done, the candidate that has the best interests of Canada at heart. In most cases that candidate will be the one being unjustly criticized by the media and other candidates. That candidate will have the security of our nation as a priority with strong immigration and refugee controls, because of that the best choice candidate will be labeled a racist. If the left and those that are weak Conservatives campaign against and demonstrate fear of a particular candidate, then that is the candidate that will do the job, just like a Trump. Any of the others are your typical, lying to get elected, untrustworthy, politically correct, weaklings that will allow our country to further degrade into a third world oppressed nation. I do not think Bernier is the one, nor would I choose the bald windbag O’Leary, I would only choose a candidate from Ontario to BC, I’m done with destructive Quebec PMs. Make sure you vote and choose wisely, as in the USA this may be our last kick at the can, the wrong one gets to be PM in the next election, we will be able to watch Canada become the new Europe. Guaranteed if Trudeau is reelected, because we are not going to be the same country in just two and a half more years with our current Justin “Moneybags” Trudeau as PM. Here’s hoping for a real Victory for Canada.

Looking at this lot, all I can say is I wish Deepak was 20 years younger, he’d level prince selfie.

LIZA ROSIE commented, “Yep. Bernier is creeping closer to being my top pick. Scheer is a close second, still not sure.” Has Brad Trost dropped off your list of favorites and if so I would be interested in knowing why? At one point you said that whoever took a strong stand against mass Muslim immigration would have your vote and support. Has Bernier in his immigration policy assured you of that?

Yep. Bernier is creeping closer to being my top pick. Scheer is a close second, still not sure.
It’s amazing to me how un serious O’leary really is about this leadership race. I can only conclude that he realizes he doesn’t have a hope in hell, but is using his run as a brand strengthening ploy with these ‘fireside’ talks he is hosting. I would be ticked off at him if I were one of his supporters, wasting my contribution like that.
