The Conservative Party of Canada has a full-blown case of Trumpism, Canada's National Observer columnist Max Fawcett writes, and the real question its members need to answer is whether it’s terminal or not.
"When the federal government gets its next opportunity to align Canada’s electoral map with the reality of its population ... it needs to do more than just tinker at the margins," Max Fawcett writes. "Instead, it needs to go big — literally."
In the face of a pandemic and an unprecedented surge in government spending and economic support that has widespread public approval, the organization remains steadfast in its belief that governments ought to be doing less rather than more, Max Fawcett says.
For conservative premiers across the country, and conservative politicians throughout North America, protecting the freedom to do business seems more important than preventing the spread of a deadly virus.
