What happened to letting the People vote?
A day after a court invalidated the Conservative Party’s disqualification of Jim Karahalios from the leadership race, the party has disqualified him again:
“BREAKING: Conservative Party of Canada confirms it has, again, disqualified Jim Karahalios from the Conservative leadership race. This time, the decision was made by LEOC. Statement from party spokesperson:”

This is a disgrace.
If I was a party member (I’m not), probably would not have voted for Karahalios.
But that’s not the issue here.
The issue is that the Conservative Party once again refuses to trust their own members.
The membership should have the right to vote freely and decide who they want to lead their party. That decision should be made by the People, not a few backroom insiders.
It’s embarrassing for the Conservatives to constantly attack Trudeau for being anti-democratic while being anti-democratic within their own party.
To truly connect with the people of this country and to strengthen the belief of their own members, the Conservatives need to show trust in them.
By booting Karahalios again, the Conservatives only show that they remain disconnected from the kind of freedom and democratic attitude their members have been calling for.
Another pathetic and foolish move by the CPC.
