I earnestly hope Erin filters out some of the Conservative backroom crowd that bombed in the last election. They totally mishandled Scheer.


Good choice in Janet Friday Dorey ! The leadership team overall are extraordinary so far!

Let’s hope he does not forget to include Lewis and Sloan regardless of what the Liberals say. Their votes gave him the win.


Absolutely! Totally agree with your statement!

Trudope’s days are numbered ! O’Toole 2020 ! Trudope>JAIL 2020 !

These appointments are just five stories. Problem is they are liberal based approach to appeal to liberals. Doug Ford is a liberal and best friends with Trudeau’s front line. Can’t say how conservatives will fair in an election doing the same game as before. The elites are not learning the lessons from the last election and are going to hurt this country.
