The campaign chair for Erin O'Toole's leadership bid is a man named Walied Soliman. A large segment of grassroots conservatives are likely to have a couple of issues with the things Mr. Soliman is involved with. For the most part, conservatives seem to have a deep-seated dislike for the amount of influence the United Nations has inside Canada, especially with the amount of influence the global organization has on our political parties and their leaders.

Jason Kenney probably used some questionable and shady tactics and strategies to ensure that he got to where he is today. I can’t imagine the behind-the-scenes intrigue and dirt-baggery that allowed him to freep the PC leadership race and then merge the Wildrose and Progressive Conservative parties. To then use even more heavy-handed dirt-baggery to win the leadership of the UCP is pretty ballsy. Progressives in Alberta are disgusted and dismayed, but they shouldn’t be surprised.

Warring factions separated by ideology, ghettoization of tribes, vile anger exchanged between various sides, an absolute refusal to cooperate and a stubborn disagreement on the direction everyone should be moving. I'm not talking about Malmo, Sweden, which has become a hub of daily bombings, violence and disharmony due to an excess of cultural diversity. I'm talking about the Conservative Party of Canada, which is being ripped apart from the inside by a very different kind of diversity: ideological diversity.

You may have noticed the earlier polls to come from Leger and EKOS showing Rona Ambrose as the frontrunner in the CPC leadership race, with almost zero competition from any other polled candidates—except ones that aren't even running. From the get-go, media and Liberals have been trying to portray a divided Conservative Party that is in turmoil, but if independent polls are any indication, that's all a bunch of bullshit.

Mackay isn't respected among younger conservatives. Moderates within the Conservative Party think he is a neo-con and social conservatives think he's a weak progressive. Neither side trusts him and Mackay's only friends in the Conservative Party are within the old establishment. If he wins the leadership, it would be because the party elites and old guard wanted him to win, not because grassroots conservatives did. That's a recipe for disaster.
