Erin O’Toole and his Conservatives are fighting a very smart battle in this election, outflanking the Liberals to the left on working class issues and stealing the NDP’s thunder. The biggest loser in this battle is Liberals who increasingly become the party of the elite and out of touch. It’s a smart strategy.
Political battles are won and lost on the terrain of culture, and O’Toole is expertly appealing to the cultural and class divides in Canada, foraging a new working-class conservatism which appreciates the quickness to demand and end to flags at half staff in recognition of the residential ‘school’ atrocities, while also speaking to the economic concerns of Canadian workers. The left better pay attention, the Conservatives are out to eat our lunch.
Then, we profile Peter Julian in the candidates corner! A champion for the issues of working Canadians and a fierce critic of the all to cozy relationship between corporate Canada and government, Peter needs our help to go back to parliament and to continue the fight!
