    Interesting teaser. But talk is cheap. Who sticks by their word, looking at their track history? Sometimes the ones who try too hard to have the answers are the first to fail, because they want power too badly and will fold to whatever provides the path.

    Funny you say that ^
    I just watched a Rebel Vid on Utube by Andrew Lawton. Regarding an ad where Max references taking the red pill from the movie the Matrix. the sjw's are twisting it to the mgtow movement, calling him a misogynist and saying that he supports rape culture. Apparently Erin O'toole and Lisa Raitt have said he should apologize, cow towing to the liberal mind set.
    Raitt is not on the above list, though O'toole is & that is why I posted this. Obviously he wants the power and will say anything to get it. Looks like my list is going to be Bernier, Scheer, Still undecided for the rest. I have to research Trost, I like Lemieux, hesitant about Blaney...

    EXACTLY! I wasn't surprised to see Raitt's "wtf Max" tweet, but I didn't know O'toole jumped on the SJW bandwagon. Too bad.

    In the broad strokes of it, my assessment of these candidates very closely aligns with CCFR's.

    There is a core of firearm friendlies from which the eventual leader may draw a cabinet, especially for the Public Safety and Justice portfolios, so as long as the Cons form the next government, we can expect better treatment. The fly in the ointment once again will be the SCC and Grit appointees in the civil service generally, unless the new Ministers establish who's boss, or revamp the CFO concept from the ground up. Which possibly means eliminating the position.

    The question remains how to form a government. The successful leader will come out with economic policies to woo the voters, most of whom know nothing about firearms and don't care. I like Max's platform so far. Just to recap:
    Scrap the carbon tax
    Reduce income tax to 0% on the first $15,000 earned
    Reduce income tax to 15% on the next $85,000 earned
    Reduce income tax to 25% on income earned over $100,000
    Abolish the capital gains tax
    Pay for tax cuts by shrinking big government and ending corporate welfare
    Essentially he's aiming at giving back what we are losing to provincial governments in the form of ever increasing user fees and green energy subsidies, in a simple to understand format. The importance of that last aspect cannot be understated.
