“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

LESLYN LEWIS – The Experience Needed To Win

Canadians are tired of politics as usual. Members of the Conservative Party of Canada are no exception.

Recently the Erin O’Toole Campaign has sent out messages under the names of other people to call my experience into question.

I plan to do politics differently. My focus is not on trying to point out the shortcomings of others. Instead, my campaign focuses on what I am offering members in terms of policy, and uniting the Party.

Conservatives only win when we are united, and I will always do my best to walk the talk when it comes to Party unity.

But when one of the other candidates publicly raises concerns about me that I disagree with, I believe it’s fair to respond. Here’s why I believe I have the experience needed to win the next election:

  • Economic recovery is going to be at the centre of any government agenda as we work to rebuild post-COVID. As someone who has run her own business for almost 20 years, I understand the needs of business owners who will be key to the recovery.
  • I have international business experience. I want to use these skills to help open up new markets for Canadian businesses around the world. In particular, I want to get Canadian oil and gas on the market.
  • I have life experience growing up in a family that chose to make Canada our home. I can relate to the challenges new Canadians face, and help welcome them into our voter coalition.
  • As a political outsider, I’m also uniquely placed to oversee a full review of CPC HQ operations, which is important to many of our members.


Politics in Canada are changing. We can see that with the overwhelming momentum that we are experiencing on my campaign.

With more than 13,000 people donating over $1.5 million dollars so far, you can see that there is grassroots excitement for a message of courage, compassion and common sense.

I hope you’ll be a part of the movement!

The stats clearly demonstrate the need for professional and impartial advice at the time of purchase, renewal, and refinancing of mortgages

REPRINTED WITH PERMISSION : Canadian Mortgage Trends   Canadians need guidance with their mortgages ... t hat’s the takeaway from a national survey released this week by Rates.ca, which found half of Canadians aren’t aware of the mortgage options available to them. Not only that, but Canadians are lacking in some other basic mortgage trivia, with an astounding 9 out of 10 respondents not knowing that mortgage interest is charged semi-annually: 28% think interest is compounded monthly; 17% think it’s bi-weekly; 17% think it’s annually; 28% just have no idea. Should we be concerned? Dustan Woodhouse, President of Mortgage Architects, and a former active broker who has written multiple educational mortgage books, thinks so. “ Sounds about right. We know about what we pay attention to, i.e., The Kardashians ,” he wrote to CMT. “ The material concern in this is how easy it makes it for the government to over-regulate the industry, with c

THE SIDEWINDER -- Just quit your constant damned whining and do something positive about it

  Living in a democracy is a wonderful thing, but it comes with responsibilities such as voting and being involved. When the dust settled on Saturdays (October 24 th ) BC election, less than two thirds of the eligible voters * took the time to vote - but the loudest bitchers will probably be among the more than one third of voters who sat on their asses and complained about how all politicians are crooks, etc. How many of you constant whiners have ever done anything close to becoming involved; or do you just like sniveling to hear your own voice? Are you one the arseholes who likes to take advantage of everything our democracy has to offer, without ever contributing anything? And I don't want to listen to your crap about paying taxes, blah, blah, blah. There's more to making democracy work than simply voting and then sitting back and let others carry the ball for you. Too many people seem unwilling to get involved - and follow-up - to make sure elected po

AARON GUNN -- He is, at his core, an ideologue, meaning the facts of any particular issue don’t actually matter

Ben Isitt - City Councillor and Regional Director Victoria City Council and its resident-genius Ben Isitt is back with another dumb idea. Introducing a motion to ban the horse-drawn carriages that have coloured Victoria’s downtown streets for decades, calling them “an outdated mode of transportation”. Are you serious?   No one is actually commuting by horse and carriage. They are here for tourists and residents alike to interact with world-class animals and discover the magic and history of our provincial capital. It’s part of what gives Victoria its charm. And the truth is these horses are treated better than anywhere else in the world. They probably live better lives than many British Columbians.   And talk to anyone who works with these horses and they’ll all tell you the exact same thing: this is what the horses love to do. This is what they were bred for and trained for. This is what gives their lives purpose and meaning. But maybe we shouldn’t be su
