You've Come Along Way, Conservatives

Don Martin in an interesting piece talks about how far the Conservatives have come since 2000. From the time when Stockwell Day became the leader of the Alliance, to the merger that united the Alliance with the Progressive Conservatives, to today where we have a Conservative government with Stephen Harper as PM.

The merger is the best thing that has happened to Canada in the last few years. Kudos to Stephen Harper and Peter Mackay for making it happen. Peter Mackay in my opinion has not been given enough credit for what he did. He gave up his leadership in the PCs and was called a Judas by former leadership rival in what he called a betrayal. Mr. Mackay would have betrayed Canada IMHO had he not gone forward with Stephen Harper to renunite the Conservative family.

This is the part I liked best in the piece that sums up the last decade nicely.


  1. You lost me at "Don Martin had an interesting piece."

  2. Great to have a blog that's actually making Conservatives the story instead of harping and whining about the Liberals all of the time.

    Thanks for this!

  3. Libs have had 5 leaders since Harper/McKay united the right....and their party still has the power divide of Chretien/Martin ,
    and the 2008 coalition of losers creating a second divide...left and right.

    It will be interesting to watch the LPC decide it's fate.
    Will they take the path of no return in uniting the left,
    or will they rebuild?


This is my home. I hope you respect it. I will not tolerate profanity or anything that is not suitable for family consumption.
