A welcome change in direction for the Conservatives, who are moving in a more populist direction that can win support from a broad range of Canadians.
In a virtual speech to the Canadian Club of Toronto, Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole outlined a pro-worker agenda, lamenting how power has been concentrated in a small elite that has pushed jobs outside of our country.
Here’s a clip:
“In a virtual event hosted by the Canadian Club Toronto, Erin O’Toole calls for better conditions for workers: ‘’Too much power is in the hands of a few corporate and financial elites who have been only too happy to outsource jobs abroad,” says the Conservative leader.”

O’Toole directly addressed the betrayal of Canadian workers, with corporations shipping our jobs to China, leading to the deindustrializing of our society that has been incredibly harmful both to workers and to our national security.
It’s great to see O’Toole moving in this direction, because this is something we’ve been talking about for a long-time. Canada needs a government that is more economically nationalist, and that defends workers.
Also, the weakness and wokeness of Jagmeet Singh has led to the NDP abandoning working class Canadians, creating a huge political opening for O’Toole and the Conservatives to expand their support.
O’Toole is definitely on the right track so far.
