I think if we look to conservative political movements elsewhere, we can find strategies for success, such that we can appeal to other segments of the population that have typically shied away from the Conservative Party. Ultimately, that is what a political movement is about, delivering on the message that Canadians know to be right.
I think we can borrow elements from the direction of the new Conservative Party of the UK for the Conservative Party of Canada to replace a stagnant Liberal government. I believe their vision meshes with our own.
The hesitation for some, would be that David Cameron, the new leader of the Conservative Party, describes himself as "liberal", but, as Christina [The Centre for Progressive Conservatism] says:
I think the Conservative Party of Canada embraces a lot of these beliefs and we should expand on them. Canadians do not want to be told what's good for them; we already know, and we want that from our government.
David Cameron ... is being seen as rather liberal because of his emphasis on “we as well as me” politics. Indeed, he describes himself as liberal, by which he means the traditional sense of “liberal” not the authoritarian Nanny State “liberalism” which tells people what to think as well as what to do.
I support Mr. Cameron's lead, and I support Britain's new choice for federal government.
