With the upcoming Conservative Party leadership race, political consultants and self-declared pundits are racing off to the nearest mainstream media outlet to discuss the future of the Party, and propagate on which compromises are needed to defeat Justin Trudeau.
The narrative from these talking-heads goes something like this: to win, Conservatives must abandon their values, cede social policy to the left, and become a party which is indistinguishable from the Trudeau Liberals on anything besides a commitment to maintain slightly smaller deficits.
The Conservatives, they preach, must be “socially progressive and fiscally conservative.”
