This article in the Globe and Mail pleasantly struck me this morning by
"In this autumn of our usual discontent with politics and politicians, we do not seem to be noticing that the balance between Canada's major parties is at or very near a historic tipping point. Stephen Harper's Conservatives have seized the central ground of the political spectrum and are poised to become the country's natural governing party."
Another quote, "Sooner or later, the contempt that many in our chattering classes still seem to feel for the Conservatives in general and Mr. Harper in particular is going to begin to give way to the realization that he is on the verge of becoming the next Mackenzie King."
"Neither colourful nor lovable, Mr. Harper is emerging as a master strategist." We conservatives have known this along.
Hope he's right. Would be nice and about time. The Liberal party has had it's time in the sun.
