Right-wing extremists will face a tougher ride in the Canadian conservative movement in the wake of a deadly protest in Charlottesville and other controversies, predicts former Tory MP and leadership candidate Chris Alexander.

Alexander said the "alt-right" had become a noticeable presence in conservative circles, but more mainstream conservatives won't accept their views.

"I think there was some naivety and some appeasement of really nasty elements — not many of them — that will end now," he said. Alexander said the extremists' presence in conservative ranks was real, but also blown out of proportion by the media.
