O'Tool supporting every major policy of commie/global Liberals cost them the election. (and every provincial 'conservative' govt moving in lock step with the same just shows it is fully up and down the chain)

it is idiotic to think that there is any difference between so called Conservatives and Liberals right now. Just like in the US Dems and Rinos are now shown as 'the Uniparty' - they are all the same. There are only those who fight FOR rights, and the vast majority fighting to take rights away. Labels are irrelevant.

Anyone saying otherwise is either a shill or missed out on everything happening in the world the last 5 years or so.

Also add:

Conservative leaders have been throwing elections to the Liberals for decades, with the exception of Harper.

in 1997 Charest came out strong, but the central campaign made it clear they had zero ideas and didnt know what they were doing 'Lets BBQ the red book too!' - and 4 days before election day 'Oh yeah I talk to Mulroney, he is like a father figure!" - boom goes from winning to losing 50 seats overnight. 6 months later he is made leader of the provincial LIBERAL party in Quebec. (I worked on that campaign and watched it happen in real time)

1993 Kim Campbell takes over, turns into a disaster, helps lose - and then gets plum ambassador job from LIBERAL PM.

The conservatives didnt just randomly pick the shittiest leaders ever twice now and run pathetic campaigns against Trudy by accident - you think a 100+ year old party with deep pockets and access to any amount of paid consultants are that stupid for so many years? They are working to help the Liberals - and are getting their payoff behind the scenes for intentionally throwing elections.

Harper was the exception, but he also came from the Reform Party side of things, not the swamp conservatives - because the only real change came from starting a new party and fighting for actual conservative values. They merged with the swamp, and had power for a bit, but the swamp took over again.

There is no functional difference between Liberals and Conservatives parties.

Exactly this. He moved too far to the left and created a new right wing party. It's very hard to define the CPC position as it's almost identical to the liberals that ran against Trudeau for the leadership position a few years ago (don't believe me? look)

If you'll notice when O'Toole said he supported the idea of vaccine passports his support crumbled immediately

The CPC got more votes and far few seats than the Liberals. Had it been the reverse then there's be mass hysteria about the need for electoral reform.

Alternative title: Yet again the NDP split the leftist vote preventing a Liberal majority.

If O'Toole did what Lifesite wanted him to i.e. promise to ban abortion and gay marriage, we'd be in a Liberal majority right now.

The Conservatives are the only party who actually handle immigration as an economic supply and demand issue. That's why they don't set annual immigration targets in their platforms. Because it makes no sense. The amount of immigration they take in is throttled according the labour market's needs in order to keep the economy on an even keel. They don't set arbitrary annual immigration targets. That's not sound economic policy. How is any government supposed to know how many or how few new workers the labour market is going to need in the second quarter three years from now?

Spoiler: They don't. Perfect example: Trudeau set his immigration target at 300k/yr in his 2019 platform. How did that work out after the pandemic hit? Exactly. He had no fucking idea in 2019 how many immigrants he'd be able to intake in 2020/2021. He was full of shit when he made that 300k/yr promise.

Any party who sets an annual immigration target in their platform is full of shit. They know that's not at all realistic. They're just pandering to the economically illiterate lunatics in their base. Xenophiles in the Liberal's case and xenophobes in the PPC's case.
