Over the weekend, Pierre Poilievre won the leadership race of the Conservative Party of Canada by a landslide. While he congratulated his fellow contenders for their efforts to unite the party and bring in new faces, it was ultimately Pierre himself who drew in the largest numbers. Most notably that of younger people. Why does he appeal to the young voter so much? To answer this, Alex is joined by Sam Routley, Doctoral Student in Political Science at Western University.
The Conservative Party of Canada will announce a new leader on Saturday evening. This comes after more than half a year of campaigning. Scott Aitchison, Roman Baber, Jean Charest, Leslyn Lewis and Pierre Poilievre were all competing for the job, but it's widely expected that Pierre Poilievre will win the race.The Globe's writer-at-large and longtime political columnist, John Ibbitson explains why Mr. Poilievre is the favourite to win, what it signals for the future of the Conservative Party and the broader implications to Canadian politics.
The Conservative leadership race will be finally coming to a close on Saturday when the winner will be announced in Ottawa.The safe bet is that Pierre Poilievre will win — perhaps even on the first ballot. But what will the results mean not only for the consensus front runner, but for Jean Charest, Leslyn Lewis, Roman Baber and Scott Aitchison?Does it matter if Poilievre wins on the first ballot? What's next for Charest should he lose? What will the results mean for Lewis and the social conservative wing of the party? And did Baber and Aitchison succeed in what they set out to do by launching their long-shot candidacies?To answer these questions and lots more, I'm joined this week by Tim Powers of Summa Strategies, Chad Rogers of Crestview Strategy and Stephanie Levitz of the Toronto Star.As always, in addition to listening to the episode in your inbox, at TheWrit.ca or on podcast apps like Apple Podcasts, you can also watch this discussion on YouTube.

We take advantage of the Canadian House of Commons' summer recess to sit down with Garnett Genuis, Member of Parliament for Sherwood Park-Fort Saskatchewan in Alberta.We shoot the summer breeze getting to know Garnett better: how his political discernment was partly inspired by a Holocaust survivor in his family and a German bishop who resisted the Nazis; how he juggles his obligations as parliamentarian and father of five; and how the Christian faith is practiced, shared, interpreted and sometimes maligned on Parliament Hill.Our discussion also features a lively mix of current events: Pope Francis' recent trip to Canada and the legacy of Indian residential schools; religious freedom at home and abroad; the state of the national pro-life movement; and the outlook for upstart political parties seeking to challenge the conservative establishment.Oh, and there's that whole Conservative Party of Canada leadership race to talk about too.Garnett was first elected to federal office in 2015 and was likewise victorious in the 2019 and 2021 elections. At 35 years of age, he's spent nearly 20% of his life representing his constituents. He's the host of his own political podcast, Resuming Debate.

It's alleged that a private corporation had paid members of Brown's campaign staff, which would be a violation of Canadian election law. National Post political reporter Ryan Tumilty joins host Dave Breakenridge to discuss how these allegations came to light, whether Brown has any recourse, and how this changes the race in the remaining two months.

Guest: Stephanie Levitz, politics reporter for the Star With just under two months left in the Conservative party leadership race, it's been a wild week that still hasn't been settled. Disqualified leadership candidate Patrick Brown is using legal means to see if he can remain in the race, but also throwing his support behind leadership candidate Jean Charest. He and Pierre Poilievre are the front-runners for the top job in an important contest where things like traditional conservative values are being challenged by a new populism, which is what the party has to wrestle with and reconcile as they choose a new leader. This episode was produced by Alexis Green, Matthew Hearn and Raju Mudhar. Audio sources used in this episode: Global News, CTV, CBC, CPAC.

Patrick Brown was disqualified from the Conservative Leadership race. He's denied allegations filed by a whistleblower that he was knowingly mismanaging how campaign staff were being paid. He's vowed to appeal the disqualification decision. But in the meantime, what would this move mean for Canadian politics? Does it mean a Pierre Poilievre coronation? Canadians are known for voting parties out of office, not into office. Which means after the Liberals have been in power for seven years and we're looking to be on the cusp of a recession, the person who leads the Conservative party next could easily be Canada's next prime minister.
