Continuing the CPC v PPC civil war is counter-productive to the shared goals of the base from both sides of the schism.

I propose a ceasefire to reflect on our common ground, and consider a Win-Win #SchismDeal that I'm sure we'll all prefer to the status-quo stalemate.

The 2 predominant narratives that permeate throughout the schism debate, pull the base into 2 polarizing black & white, my way or the highway, perspectives.

Before we get to the #SchismDeal, let me offer you a 3rd narrative. Let's call it the CPC-PPC Duality.

The 1st step in the CPC-PPC Duality Narrative is to acknowledge that Max & his supporters have a legit grievance with the CPC. Scheer should have prioritized uniting the party. Instead he pushed Max away. A better leader would have found a working compromise.

Likewise, it would certainly be nice if the only person in a position to unseat Trudeau b4 he finalizes the globalist agenda, showed strength & willingness to fight for principled conservatism, without the inclination to adopt cautious positions.

Not much of a duality so far, I know. But that's b/c up to this point the PPC narrative is based on a fair critique of Scheer's shortcomings.

The problem is, the PPC narrative goes on to assert that Scheer is much like Trudeau with the "LibCon/Scheerdeau" rhetoric.

Not only does this come across as a huge stretch, but it also implicitly concedes that the PPC votes will predominantly come from those who'd otherwise vote for the CPC. And when the PPC dismisses the vote-splitting concerns, many conclude the narrative is deceptive.

This quickly leads to the current predicament where patriots spend way too much time fighting petty battles against other patriots, and as a result bridges are burnt, and our ability to organize collaborative information campaigns & protests, is limited by the division.

I refuse to be sucked into this easily avoidable feud!

This really doesn't have to be a 0-sum game!

The UN Migration Compact demonstrated how channeling the grassroots through Max, can flank the CPC into taking a stronger stance.

This is something we can work with!

So here's what I'm proposing..

The PPC drops the LibCon rhetoric, acknowledges that vote splitting is a legit concern, and starts acting like they get that Scheer is the only one in the position to save Canada from Trudeau's globalist/Lib agenda.

Accordingly, Max takes the "I'll be the bigger man & put Canada over party" approach, and announces that instead of the 338, he'll be running a targeted "drain the swamp" campaign against up to 10 red Tories, naming Chong & Raitt, & leaving the rest open for leverage.

Even if the CPC-leaning base & the CPC offered nothing in return, I'm convinced that a unilateral PPC pivot according to the above proposal, would eliminate the biggest obstacle that up until now prevented many solid conservatives from seeing the PPC as a net good.

Of course, according to my proposal, the CPC base will reciprocate by dropping the anti-Max narrative, will support Max for MP, will help Max flank the CPC to the right, and will support the PPC candidates against the worst red Tories.

With more widespread public support for the PPC among the CPC base, there'll be a powerful deterrent for red Tories to stop voicing out Lib-lite drivel, and an incentive for other tactically-moderate CPC MPs & candidates to be bolder both with words & with votes.

With the ability to gather the PPC volunteers from neighbouring ridings without a 2019 candidate, to a targeted riding, these punishment campaigns will have a high likelihood of having the weak links defeated, and empowering the base to flank the CPC to the right.

A united base with the ability to set the agenda of 2 parties while limiting the vote-splitting effect only to a few targeted ridings, is tactically advantageous to having an unaccountable CPC (as was b4 the PPC), and is certainly preferable to the divisive status quo.

A united base could join forces with the established PPC riding associations in ridings with no PPC candidate, and collaborate on information campaigns exposing the Liberals for what they are, indirectly helping the CPC today while making the PPC stronger for tomorrow.

If the CPC wins majority, and ends up being as ineffective as some PPC members expect, then the PPC infrastructure will be of critical importance to make sure that in 2023 we'll get real conservative representation.

If the CPC loses, and the PPC can't be blamed for the vote-splitting, the PPC will grow stronger.

Compare that to a CPC loss following CPC & PPC competing in all 338 ridings, perhaps leading to 25 key seats lost due to vote-splitting. Would the PPC be able to recover?

I see so many arguments in favour of the #SchismDeal! It's literally a "where we go 1 we go all" approach.
