This week’s Hub Dialogue Roundtable discusses the implications of Alberta finance minister Jason Nixon wading into the United Conservative Party’s leadership race this week before comparing and contrasting the Canadian leadership races to the ongoing contest to choose a Tory leader in the U.K.

Finally, they dig into the likelihood of a moderate conservative party forming in Canada in response to what some Conservative members see as a shift toward populism.
