A lot of ink is being spilled trying to analyze why Premier Kenney failed to maintain the confidence of the United Conservative Party and was forced to resign.

Can we really just blame it on the conservative base being angry and reactionary?

On today’s episode of the Candice Malcolm Show, Candice is joined by former Alberta Finance Minister and longtime conservative scholar Dr. Ted Morton.

Candice and Ted discuss the political culture in Alberta, the many missteps made by Premier Kenney, the bad cards he drew and they discuss the future of the party.

They also touch on the future of oil and gas in Canada, the many failings of our Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and why Ted is supporting Pierre Poilievre for leader of the Conservative party of Canada.

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.
