Libertarianism sounds pretty good to me. There's a huge effort to categorize Canadians into left or right wing with an emphasis on the negative connotations along with it.I can't however discount the possibility that there are more far-right or Libertarian types than we perhaps realize, and that the events of the last 18 months have stirred them up enough to reject establishment parties entirely.
I bet there's a lot of Canadians smack in the middle who would vote PPC if it wasn't for the fact they've both been vilified from the start AND some of it's deserved due to the people they've attracted.
Reminds me of something interesting I read once - "You can kill an idea if you make it popular with stupid people".
If Trudeau was kicked to the curb I could see myself leaning towards PPC if they clean up their image and combat the idiot spokespeople they have. However the direction O'Toole is leading the CPC is interesting. Either he's just trolling the LPC (and Canadians) just for votes, or he's really looking to bring the CPC closer to the center and if that's the case I'd stick around.
