Unfortunately, the PC sold their souls to the Alliance and Harper, the prime reformer, hides his ideas under the name Conservative and I sure there's PCs within the party that don't agree and some have left because they don't agree. I don't know if some of these Tories MP's realize the damage that the leader and some of his VIP's MP's are doing to their respectability as MP's. In this case, silence is not golden.
As usual Topaz, your blindness means you see it entirely backwards! All those points in the article were championed by the Reform/Alliance! The fact that they are missing from today's Conservative Party is what makes it a clone of the previous PC party!
What's more, those points are NOT with either the Liberals or the NDP!
Today, we Canadians of the Reform/Alliance persuasion have NO real choice anymore, except to vote CPC because they are SLIGHTLY more to our values than the others!
What's more, at least the CPC might throw us a bone once in a while, even if there's no meat on it. The Liberals and NDP make no secret of the fact that they don't support our values at all.
