For many years, working class Canadians have lacked an advocate among Canada’s political parties.

The Conservatives were long-focused on the traditional coalition of social conservatives, libertarians, and fiscal conservatives. The Liberals serve the interests of global elites and foreign corporations, while seeking to manipulate the woke ground troops.

The NDP has fully abandoned their traditional support of working class Canadians, moving completely to the ‘woke’ agenda that replaces actual economic progress with identity politics and racial division.

Amid all of this, working class Canadians—probably the largest political group in the country—were repeatedly betrayed, as wages remained weak, good jobs fled, precarious work surged, and power flowed towards global corporations and foreign elites at the expense of millions of Canadians.

But now, it appears this may be changing.

There has been a perceptible shift in many Western countries, with Conservatives becoming more and more a working class movement. In the UK, many working class voters fled the far-left Corbyn Labour Party and voted for Boris Johnson and the Conservatives, giving them a huge victory.

In Australia, the Liberal Party (which is the Conservative Party in that country), won a surprising victory in large part due to their opposition to the anti-worker, anti-coal industry platform of the leftist opposition.

In the United States, Donald Trump won states in the manufacturing heartland by embracing a more pro-worker, high wage, pro-manufacturing platform and won the presidency.

And here in Canada, new Conservative leader Erin O’Toole seems to be moving the Conservative Party in a more pro-Canadian worker direction, seeking to add working class Canadians to the current Conservative coalition.

O’Toole has already criticized both big government and big businesses, and has noted that strong families, good jobs, and strong manufacturing are essential to the success of our nation.

O’Toole is making clear and open appeals to Canadian workers, recognizing that the traditional political paradigms no longer work.

Politicians like Trudeau fear a strong working class more than anything, because working class Canadians are patriotic, hard-working people who love Canada, who built and continue build our country, and who don’t want to see our nation or heritage dismantled.

The corrupt elites have tried to crush the working class by keeping people desperate and on the brink of financial collapse. The "green agenda" is the latest example of that war against working class Canadians, as it makes life more and more expensive, and takes more and more money away from people who can barely make ends meet as it is.

In contrast to the green agenda, O’Toole is offering a focus on common-sense, bringing back good jobs, building real tangible things in Canada, becoming less reliant on big corporations or foreign countries, and ensuring that we have strong families and strong local communities.

If O’Toole and the Conservatives stick to a pro-working class message, and – much more importantly – if they actually follow through on it, they have the opportunity to represent millions of Canadians who have been abandoned, and they could reshape our political spectrum for many years to come.
