Why was Pierre not in favour of Freedumb when he voted against legalizing cannabis? Makes you think he's just lying to the gullible idiots because they're low-hanging fruit. Again.

I moderate Facebook pages for community involvement and my sense is that more normies are calling out the Freedummies and bravely so.

IMO brave speech is when you say something where you would reasonably be expected to likely incur some kind of significant punishments for saying it, but you say it anyways.

If Brown or Charest manage to win, they would likely oust Trudeau.

Any of the other nutbars, and Trudeau wins.

I don’t know much about Brown but agreed on Charest. I trust your judgment on Brown too, I’ll have to learn more about him.

Maybe, maybe not.

In Canada's political system (with first-past-the-post, and urban-vs-rural voting patterns) I can certainly envision a scenario where someone like Poilievre manages to win (even if its just a minority government). It would probably require Liberal support completely collapsing in the west (certainly not unheard of... remember the days of Trudeau Sr., where at the end he had no seats west of Manitoba) and non-urban areas of Ontario going conservative.

Not that I'm saying I WANT Poilievre to win. I would certainly never vote for him (and I have regularly voted conservative in the past).

Overall, not a great collection of candidates. A group who are either covidiots (Poilievre, Baber), anti-abortion religious nutjobs (Lewis), have troubling scandals in his past (Brown), have questionable plans to address climate change (Aitchsison), or are warmed-over Liberals (Charest).  I don't expect perfection, but what happened to the idea of having a decent, principled conservative leader who wasn't a wingnut?

per the CPC's leadership election rules:
Quote
the Leadership Candidate Nomination Committee (LCNC), the group of party stalwarts reviewing applications from would-be candidates, can also rely on "any other information they see fit to ascertain the suitability of an applicant." The LCNC can, in turn, recommend to a 21-member group, the Leadership Election Organizing Committee (LEOC) that a particular candidate be barred from running.

the anti-abortion group, Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) had initially been quite buoyed in interpreting 4 of its 'endorsed candidates' would be accepted as candidates running for the CPC leadership. However, the CLC is now raising concerns that 3 of its preferred candidates were not verified... were not accepted by the LEOC even though 3 of the 4 had met the $300,000 buy-in fee and also obtained the required number of party member sponsoring signatures. The only CLC endorsed person receiving the verified candidate status from the LEOC/CPC is Leslyn Lewis - who coincidentally tweeted the following:
   

Quote from: Jack Fonseca Campaign Life Coalition, Director of Political Operations
One of the pillars of the CPC, and of the broader “small-c” conservative movement, is democracy – letting the people, not the elites, decide who should represent them. Therefore, this sort of Cancel Culture has no business in the Conservative Party.

In the end, if Bourgault and Abraham are unsuccessful in their appeals, Campaign Life Coalition will do its best to ensure that Leslyn Lewis is victorious as the only green-lit, pro-lifer of the six “verified” candidates.

beyond the anticipated appeals for these 2 'SoCons' (Bourgault & Abraham), Toronto lawyer Joel Etienne also demands an appeal to his disqualification from the Conservative leadership race... a disqualification made by the CPC/LEOC even though Etienne states he raised more than the required $300K 'buy-in fee' and also secured more than the required number of sponsoring party member signatures.
