What's is the future of the Con party? IMO, until they do a total rebuild or unless Trudeau seriously screws up I see Trudeau lasting until at least the 2023 election. Harper "was" the Conservative Party, without him there is no head to the animal. They'll need to find new leaders while their two or three distinct bases (western guns and god social cons, central-eastern blue liberals and small gov't supporting undecideds) fight amongst each other. Meanwhile Trudeau will focus on growing his base at the detriment of the other parties. There's a good reason he's inviting Elizabeth May to the Paris climate change summit, since Trudeau can position himself as the green PM. By forcing 50% of his cabinet ministers to be women he's positioning himself as the feminist/women's PM. Lastly, by enacting electoral reform, likely in the form of ranked ballets (IMO), Trudeau will ensure polarizing parties will never again win sufficient seats to form majority gov't without first compromising their principles to appeal to national voters, something the Cons are unlikely to accomplish. This electoral reform is also not necessarily good news for the Libs, since the electorate will be less inclined to hold their noses and vote strategically Liberal to block the Cons. So, what is the future of the Cons?
