Michael Chong

Conservative Leadership Candidate

This week’s Conversation That Matters features Michael Chong a man who wants to lead the Conservative Party and ultimately Canada. He says he is the embodiment of a Canadian, multi-cultural, bilingual, socially liberal and fiscally conservative. Chong says, “Canadians believe in building political parties based on fiscally conservative agendas which are also inclusive.”

On immigration, he says he’s not afraid to invite the people of the world come and join us in the building of our nation, “we've created something very special, a place where millions of people have created a different kind of society where it doesn't matter where you come from, what your background, your race, religion, or creed is, but rather what you aspire to be and a place where we all share a common Canadian citizenship centered around our charter rights and freedoms, our laws, our democracy. So we've built something here pretty special that we need to protect, but also enhance.”

Conversations That Matter is a partner program with the Centre for Dialogue at Simon Fraser University. Join veteran Broadcaster Stuart McNish each week for these important and engaging Conversations shaping our future.
