I invite every candidate to borrow aggressively from the list of external policies and internal reforms that I will list in these essays; not only will these suggestions help the borrowers to attract the support of median Conservatives like myself; the borrowers will also (I believe) stand a much better chance of winning the next election.
There are three themes that I believe should be central to modern Canadian Conservatism:

- A clear vision on the Economy and the Environment.
I’ll discuss these in three separate essays. Today, I propose to talk about democracy.
