10. Blue Tories CONservative socially & fiscally. Red Tories are socially liberal, fiscally CONservative


Fiscal policies are not libertarian. They just want to spend less and cut taxes more. That's not what makes a libertarian, even if libertarians and especially faux-libertarians (far more numerous in both US and Canada) want the same.

Regardless, I would not call the Canadian CONservative party "libertarian", nor would I call Bernier's new party "libertarian".

As to the abortion issue, that is settled in Canada definitely in favor of a woman's right to choose. But CONservative leaders have to squelch back-benchers who want to re-open the debate and torpedo the CONs in elections (scorpion carried by frog).
