National Post – – Pierre Poilievre elected new leader of the Conservative Party of Canada
Canada’s National Observer – Taylor – Now Pierre Poilievre takes the stage as leader of Canada’s Conservatives
Toronto Star – Pierre Poilievre: Quick facts about the Conservative leadership candidate
Sal says that the selection of Pierre Poilievre as leader of the Conservatives exemplifies the dearth of political leadership talent in Canada. Pierre never had a real job in his life. He’s been either a political consultant or a politician all his working days.
Since Pierre has been nothing but a political hack and politician all his working days where did he learn his fiscal conservatism or is he only morally conservative.
The modern conservative is engaged in one of man’s oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.
