If you're expecting him to make the Conservatives like the PPC, you're going to be disappointed
I think you’re off track as he’s a closet conservative. They’re like normal conservatives but they haven’t come out’a the closet yet.Have you bought your membership yet ? Like a good liberal you can affect the leadership race and get Charest in there .
Is it you? It’ll be ok. I’d still like to see L. Lewis in the race.Someone is feeling a little threatened
A Conservative senator from Quebec helping Pierre Poilievre try to win leadership of the party is criticizing Jean Charest as a 'Conservative of convenience,' who on Monday nabbed an endorsement from another potential contender.www.ctvnews.ca
I agree with you in that the PPC is over on the “Right” side of the political spectrum as opposed to the Conservatives being “Center Left” while the Liberanos and NDP and Greens are progressively further and further out into the “Left Wing Fringe” direction of the political spectrum, & it’s time to come back to the Center.If you're expecting him to make the Conservatives like the PPC, you're going to be disappointed
Well, at least now it’s NOT gonna be a coronation where this dude is gonna be parachuted into the position by political support from old stock Canadians exclusively from East of Thunder Bay ON.CTV and their long ass headlines
Charest to be in Ottawa to meet with Conservative MPs to discuss party leadershipFormer Quebec premier Jean Charest will be in Ottawa this week to discuss the party's leadership with Conservative MPs at an event hosted by two who want him to run.
Quebec MP Alain Rayes and Nova Scotia's Rick Perkins were among the signatories of an open letter published last week saying they want the 63-year-old to enter the race. Others included Ontario MP John Nater and New Brunswick Sen. Percy Mockler.
While the race to lead the Conservative Party of Canada may still only have one contender, its members of Parliament are being invited to meet with a potential second.www.ctvnews.ca
The country is so far left that most Conservatives are already diet Liberals.
Going so far left they'll end up right?
Only if the flux capacitor is charged to 1.2 gigaWatts.
So….it’s time for the nation to move back towards the Center (Conservative) and away from the wings either “Right” (Maxine Berniers Party) or “Left” (Liberal/NDP/Green) then? Is that what you all are saying?Left is authority.
Right is liberty.

Thank you Mentalfloss for bringing this to all of our attention. I’ll root for your guy Pierre if you’ll also root for my pick of Leslyn Lewis? I think either would be a far superior choice for Canada than Charest.
I thought Doug Ford was focussed on his reelection as a provincial candidate for Ontario. I didn’t think he was interested in a federal capacity with respect to himself.Either way, I would hardly call any of these candidates truly conservative.
Just look at Doug Ford in Ontario. They are all very much progressive and left leaning still.
