Who's talking about tax cuts and balanced budgets at a time like this? I'll give you two guesses

A Conservative leadership race just wouldn’t be Conservative if it didn’t include a clarion call for lower taxes and a balanced budget.

In normal times, it would make sense that leadership contender Erin O’Toole is pledging to deliver both of those, and his main competitor Peter MacKay is hinting at the same as they vie to replace Andrew Scheer as the Leader of the Official Opposition.

But these are not normal times, and even conservative orthodoxy deserves to be put under the microscope during a time of deep economic crisis, huge deficits, unforeseen holes in the social safety net and disproportionate pain for the most vulnerable.
