CPC leader Pierre Poilievre spent the weekend hammering a message of affordability and economic focus at his party's convention in Quebec. Most of the delegates were right there with him—but not all of them.
After a great summer that saw them surge past the federal Liberals in the polls, the Conservatives are aiming to stay on track, stay unified and form government the next time Canada goes to the polls. To do that they'll have to avoid the kind of divisive, so-called "culture-war" policies championed by some of their base.
Can they do it? Will Poilievre keep the party in lockstep? And how does a party keep momentum going for two whole years, anyway?
