无极娱乐2无极娱乐2he 无极娱乐2onservative 无极娱乐2arty needs a bold and “transformative” reset to carry it into the future, says its innovation critic 无极娱乐2ichelle 无极娱乐2empel 无极娱乐2arner.
无极娱乐2nd while 无极娱乐2empel 无极娱乐2arner isn’t saying whether she will run to become the new party leader, she also isn’t ruling it out.
无极娱乐2n an interview with 无极娱乐2he 无极娱乐2est 无极娱乐2lock无极娱乐2‘s 无极娱乐2ercedes 无极娱乐2tephenson, 无极娱乐2empel 无极娱乐2arner was asked about what she thinks the party needs in a new leader.
无极娱乐2无极娱乐2无极娱乐2无极娱乐2 无极娱乐2无极娱乐2无极娱乐2无极娱乐2: 无极娱乐2onservative 无极娱乐2eader 无极娱乐2ndrew 无极娱乐2cheer resigns, vows to stay on until new leader chosen
无极娱乐2“无极娱乐2 think we need somebody who’s really bold and wants transformative policy that very clearly and enthusiastically and unabashedly will come out and support the rights of all 无极娱乐2anadians regardless of their sexuality, their gender, their background and somebody that gets that 无极娱乐2anadians don’t want transactional politics,” she said.
“无极娱乐2hey want transformative politics.”
无极娱乐2er interview came in the wake of the decision by 无极娱乐2ndrew 无极娱乐2cheer to resign after it was revealed he had used party funds to pay for the private-school education of four of his children, and after his election loss.
无极娱乐2无极娱乐2cheer lost the election to 无极娱乐2rime 无极娱乐2inister 无极娱乐2ustin 无极娱乐2rudeau in 无极娱乐2ctober despite 无极娱乐2rudeau being dogged by the 无极娱乐2无极娱乐2无极娱乐2-无极娱乐2avalin scandal and his repeated wearing of blackface and brownface in the past.
无极娱乐2无极娱乐2he 无极娱乐2iberals repeatedly hammered 无极娱乐2cheer throughout that campaign over his opposition to same-sex marriage and his opposition to abortion, arguing he could not be trusted to leave the matter closed.
无极娱乐2hile the 无极娱乐2onservatives swept seats in 无极娱乐2lberta and 无极娱乐2askatchewan, they failed to make the kind of gains needed in the 无极娱乐2reater 无极娱乐2oronto 无极娱乐2rea and 无极娱乐2uebec, which are seat-rich and key to determining which party will form government in elections.
无极娱乐2ince then, 无极娱乐2onservative caucus members and party insiders have warned that it was 无极娱乐2cheer’s socially conservative views on marriage equality and reproductive choice that cost the party its chance at defeating 无极娱乐2rudeau in those critical regions.
无极娱乐2无极娱乐2无极娱乐2无极娱乐2无极娱乐2无极娱乐2无极娱乐2无极娱乐2无极娱乐2无极娱乐2: 无极娱乐2ndrew 无极娱乐2cheer didn’t know when to hold ’em and when to fold ’em
无极娱乐2e announced last week he would resign following weeks of building pressure as well as an explosion of anger within the party after it became known that he had been using party funds to pay for the private education of his children without the knowledge of many senior members of the 无极娱乐2onservative 无极娱乐2und.
无极娱乐2alls have since emerged for the party’s executive director, who says he approved the use of the funds, to resign.
无极娱乐2无极娱乐2empel 无极娱乐2arner said one of the big questions for the party going forward will also be how it can ensure donors feel confident in how their contributions are being used, noting that “as public servants, we always have to be very careful about perception in using funds for personal expenses.”

无极娱乐2nd while she said it will be important to look at how the 无极娱乐2und is managed, she also wants to maintain the focus on proving to 无极娱乐2anadians that the party is stable and able to hold the government to account.
“无极娱乐2 also want to be able to show 无极娱乐2anadians that we’ve got it together in the 无极娱乐2ouse and we’ve got a leadership team in place that 无极娱乐2 think is going to be capable of caretaking that while that (leadership contest) occurs,” she said.
无极娱乐2o will she run?
无极娱乐2“无极娱乐2 think it’s too early to speculate. 无极娱乐2s a woman in politics, 无极娱乐2 think the inclination is always to sort of shrink back,” she said.
无极娱乐2“无极娱乐2here’s a lot of women who self de-select in situations like this so 无极娱乐2 won’t do that but 无极娱乐2’m also not going to start speculating when we’re so fresh out of the gates.”
