Tier 1: Top Ballot Choices
Vote for these unapologetic pro-life/pro-family candidates as your #1 and/or #2 choices, in whatever order you prefer.
Individual rating for each Tier 1 candidate is based on the number and quality of socially conservative policies put forth by each candidate, as well as how outspoken each of them has been on life & family issues. Sloan has the edge on these criteria, but Lewis is also a good choice. Unfortunately, the Party establishment disqualified Jim Karahalios a second time, on May 21st, based on a false, trumped up complaint initiated by one of his competitors.
No other candidate should be considered for ranking on the ballot.
Tier 2: not supportable
The remaining candidates are disqualified from consideration owing to their support for abortion, which is a disqualifying factor for pro-life voters. Please do not rank their names on the ballot, at all.
Each year, over 100,000 children are killed before birth, and neither MacKay nor O'Toole is prepared to protect them. Ranking either man third or fourth would send the message to all Canadian politicians that they can support the killing of babies in-utero, and still count on the votes of pro-lifers.
Furthermore, it would be strategically counterproductive to our cause in the long-term, over the coming years. By strategically withholding support from politicians who promote and affirm abortion, or who refuse to do anything to stop the killing of children before birth, we will be cultivating more courageous leaders in the future.
They will understand that in order to harness the power of the pro-life/family movement, they need to offer us concrete policies. Likewise, parties will understand that to get pro-life/family Canadians excited, it is necessary to raise up Leaders who share our values.

When do we vote?
It's anticipated that the Conservative Party will send voting ballots through the mail sometime between the last week of June to the first week of July. Members will be able to fill out their ranked ballot and send it back to the party by Canada Post, in envelopes that will be provided by the Party. Completed ballots must be received by the CPC no later than August 21, 2020.
Only those who were paid-up party members as of 11:59 pm ET on May 15, 2020 will be eligible to vote.
If you are unsure whether your CPC membership lapsed before the May 15th deadline to become a voting member, please call the Party headquarters at 1-866-808-8407 Monday - Friday, between 9:00 am to 5:00pm, and ask a party staff member to look your name up in their system.
