At least Trudeau worked outside the walls of parliament. Scheer is a light weight and will be destroyed by Trudeau. Hopefully, the CPC will smarten up so the religious right doesn't win the leadership again.

Why the hate,because harper yrs back called the east out on the UI thingy?? He was right.

He should be running for the liberals.

And proud of it. It would be terrible to be liked by racists, bigots, misogynists. The lower the score the better. 

I would go with O'Leary. Too many career politician idiots on the podium. Bernier is a dolt. He can't figure out how to use his  zipper is let alone a budget. I would vote for Bonnie Raitt not Li

I'm curious to know where would you position Muslim or Sikh MPs on this "religious" scale of yours? Religious left? Religious centre? Or Religious right?

I prefer my leader's to believe it equal rights and not be afraid of allowing caucus members to speak up because you're afraid of showing how out of touch you are. 

Trudeau isn't afraid to have caucus members speak up! Because if you don't agree with Trudeau you don't get to be a candidate for the Liberal party.

Of course, the same goes for the NDP. No disagreement with the Great Leader is allowed in left wing parties.

There's a reason why Newfoundland has the fattest people in Canada - they do just enough work - when they bother - to qualify for pogey - then it's back sitting around sucking down beer and complaining about the weather.

Hmmmmm "I don't want you in my party." vs. "Can you just keep quiet about that so we can get elected?"  Which one sounds better is what you're asking?

And again, where is the evidence Tory pro lifers weren't allowed to voice their opinions? They certainly spoke up at anti-abortion rallies often enough. I'm sure they spoke up in caucus too.

I wish more party leaders would ostracize those that do not align with your party platform.....especially societal issues.  IMO this is why these views still hold water as generation over generation they are allowed to fester in the corner getting sunlight once in awhile to survive.  If leaders put those characters to pasture those ideas would wilt much faster as they should.  Unfortunately greed overcomes that with gaining whatever power that festering mass in the corner can add to their own.

The Conservatives don't make politics a matter of private morality a matter of government fiat. They don't have a party platform related to abortion or gay rights.

So if someone has beliefs you don't like all political leaders should ostracize those people, even if thirty or forty percent of the public also holds those views?

The Left talks much about tolerance, but the one thing they won't tolerate is people having different opinions and beliefs!

They used to have moral aspects in their platform......guess why it was removed?

I would like any party I'd vote for to ostracize those people.  They can run for a party that proudly stakes a claim on that ideal and see where they fall.  I just don't like party leaders who say "We're a big tent" but they really mean is "I hate what they say but I need them to hold onto power".  Both Red & Blue.

Because Harper's only real religion was power.

The Liberals used to have them too. Very recently, too. Not that they ever paid attention to anything related to morality - or ethics.

I don't think a lot of Conservatives hate what they say. I don't. I think they're wrong in most cases. I wouldn't mind some law on abortion, similar, perhaps, to what they have in Sweden or France. I think the transgender thing is a massive, frantic waste of time and effort by shrill, stupid people who are always desperate to be seen as embracing every progressive fashion. And I don't care if gays want to marry as long as no religious group is forced to marry them. But if you want to disagree politely I'm like <shrug>. Religious people, those too devoted to whatever their religion is, tend to make me roll my eyes, but they're usually not harmful.  So-cons don't anger me nearly as much as those freaks on the left who wear black masks and hoodies and bully, assault and scream insults at anyone with a different opinion.

They're both harmful in their own way.

One mutters over their coffee and the other screams in your face.

.....well I always hear about this "silent majority" that's always ready to take over.

 

Silent majorities rarely take over. It's the vocal, fanatic minorities that tend to get their way - unfortunately.

haha!!  You take those numbers seriously as an indication to your brilliance. Omg. Take a closer look.  Most of the posters with high numbers are rightwingers. 

It's a ridiculous way to measure understanding of the world.

Well Harper did the same thing and Scheer says he plans to do the exact same thing.

Untrue. If Harper had done the thing his whole caucus would have been anti-abortion, like he was. You had lots in caucus who were pro choice, lots who were pro gay marriage, lots who were both pro and anti death penalty, etc. etc.
