As the Conservative Party of Canada looks for a new leader, some young Conservatives are asking themselves what it would take to make their party more attractive to newer voters.
Dennis Matthews is one of them. He used to manage government advertising in Stephen Harper’s PMO; these days he’s a vice-president at Enterprise Canada.
In a recent Twitter cri de coeur, he reflected on what he described as his party’s need to be contemporary.
The Conservative Party should embrace policies for the new decade, he said, by engaging on topics that matter to younger Canadians, such as the opioid epidemic and the spread of workplace automation.
