Erin O’Toole’s Trump-like politics

Donald Trump’s divisive tactics have no place in Canada —  but Erin O’Toole just took a page from his playbook.

O’Toole’s Conservatives got caught spreading dangerous, trumped up lies about rigging and stealing elections in Canada. In the same week, a picture of his deputy leader, Candice Bergen, wearing a MAGA hat surfaced on the internet. 

But that’s not all. When Erin O’Toole was running for leader, he hired the founder of the extreme right-wing groups, Canada Proud and Ontario Proud to run his digital campaign. And when recently asked, O’Toole even admitted his “Canada First” policies are no different than Donald Trump’s “America First” approach. 

We know how it started in Trump’s America:

MAGA hat

… and how it’s going:

Capitol Riot Chaos

It’s never OK to undermine our democracy, but that’s especially true right now after what we’ve seen south of the border. 

Erin O’Toole and the Conservatives are a danger to our democracy — at the worst possible time.
