"But in July 2000, Day indicated a willingness to form political ties with the Bloc if it meant ousting the federal Liberals from power. He said his party's position was "to be open to anybody who's interested in a truly conservative form of government.''

"I'm not big on labels," Day told reporters at the time when asked about a possible coalition to oust Chrétien's Liberals.

"If there are people who embrace the views of the Canadian Alliance and believe we need a federal government that is limited in size, that respects the provinces and that wants lower taxes, I'm not interested where they may have been in the past politically.'' "

Why in the blue hell would the tories form political ties when the Liberals had a majority? That would be political suicide, even Day knows that. Yah, a coalition to become a bigger official opposition, that's proposterous.
