Andrew Scheer has stepped down as leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, though that doesn’t change any of the problems facing the Conservatives.

As the party searches for a new leader, it also needs to find meaning. This means resisting the calls to make it a party that looks like the Liberals but with a blue logo. It also means ensuring that the party is grounded in a philosophy and not drifting wherever it thinks the media wants it to go.

True North’s Andrew Lawton thanks Scheer for his service to party and country, and offers some suggestions for how the Conservative party can move forward.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
