He was always a liberal in a blue suit, that's why he lost the leadership bid.


That's the reason why the Conservatives are probably going to be in the Opposition for a long time - anyone who isn't far right is a 'liberal'.

The problem with this stance is that millenials and even some Gen Z - the vast majority of whom are left of centre or moderate - are voting now and are going to reduce the hold on politics Boomers have had for a couple decades.

Scheer thought he could use a far right platform to win an election, and he couldn't even get a minority when Trudeau was dealing with the scandals and blackface - odds are O'Toole isn't going to do any better going forward.


what is far right?


Far right is usually very socially conservative, although it's possible extreme austerity policy (like Kenney cutting supports for poor and disabled folks in Alberta) might also get one dumped there.

If you want to change less strict gun control laws, deny climate change, want to limit/ban abortions, are homophobic/against gay rights, racist, against reconciliation with FN to name a few.

If you're fiscally conservative but not interested in opening those social issues, then you might get a shot with Millenials and Gen Z.

If you support any of them, you're in trouble in the future.

Scheer supported several of those issues, which is why he's back trying to sell insurance instead of being Prime Minister.

Social conservatism can often be a poor sell even here in Alberta. Remember how the Wildrose Alliance lost the 2012 election on the "Lake Of Fire' comment? I have multiple family members who bled conservative blue, hated the PCs and wanted them gone, but couldn't stomach the idea of supporting the social conservatism.

And when Ralph Klein refused to use the notwithstanding clause to oppose the Supreme Court requiring gay rights in our provincial human rights code, it didn't seem to hurt him politically.
