To the surprise of no one, Peter MacKay is taking a run for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada. Personally, I used to think this would be a good thing for the country. I had been a fan of MacKay ever since the merger of the PCs and Alliance and I thought the guy had a lot of terrific qualities that would make for a good Prime Minister. However, his experience comes with baggage and his accomplishments are viewed by some as liabilities. There are some legitimate red flags Conservative Party supporters should consider before casting their vote. Red flags that surprised me.

Social Conservatives in Canada are an extreme minority. There’s a small subsection of intelligent (and likely) activist groups that understand socially conservative positions and issues and knowingly agree with that point-of-view. They’ll cite classic works of great thinkers throughout antiquity and draw parallels to times of decline or collapse with the madness of our own. They’ll be able to dominate specific debates like abortion, but be completely ineffective at changing the cultural zeitgeist.

Stephen Harper is often regarded by his supporters as one of Canada's greatest prime ministers, but one fatal and devastating mistake can be attributed to his legacy that has set forth a future of obstruction for all future Conservative governments in Canada. This mistake was the result of blind ideology and a stubborn adherence to a principle that would never amount to anything. Before leaving office, Stephen Harper refused to do one thing that could have positively changed Canada's future. All future Conservative governments will now, therefore, be paying the price for decades to come.

The Andrew Scheer I came to know during the leadership race was not the same Andrew Scheer on the campaign trail. Conservative handlers and strategists have played too much of a role in controlling the script and directing the leader's message. Scheer's wit and personality were mostly suppressed in favour of having a controlled, contrived and watered down message. Now, with him gone and a new leader set to take over, the party has a chance to learn from its mistakes.

Danny Hozack is a long-time fixture on the Alberta political scene. He’s an ambitious, friendly and enthusiastic gentlemen with a can-do spirit and an entrepreneurial zeal. His biggest projects over the last few years have been his Freedom Talk conferences. He brings together conservatives of many stripes to talk about current issues at weekend conferences held around the province.

The left in America will never be truly defeated until they are beaten, again, by the very man they despise. All of their virtue signalling, victimhood peddling, race baiting, gender politics, censorship and intersectionality trash came crashing down when Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016. To keep it all down and to stop them from rebuilding, Donald Trump must win again in November. The job wasn't finished when Trump won the first time, it was only the beginning.
