Conservative Prime Minster Death Match 3000


Digging around some officialdomish web sites today and came across The Office of the Prime Minister of Canada site as well as the Conservative Party of Canada and Sheena learnded something interesting.

That:

In 2003, Mr. Harper co-founded the Conservative Party of Canada and went on to contest and win the new party’s leadership.


Well, now. Sheena is no expert on memory erasure or historical revisionism, but I'm pretty sure that Macdonald, Bowell, Tupper, Borden, Meighen and Bennett at the very least could progress Harper's ass right back to Diefenbakerville. Al Gore eat your heart out.

I actually have zero political affiliation, scout, and have no idea who I'd vote for in the next election (if at all). But this is pretty crass and narrow spin on the legacy of the Conservative party in Canada.

'Crass and narrow'

That pretty much sums up the Conservative party as now constituted.

Sheena, you're talking about the PC party's past, not the current CPoC. Although realistically, they are pretty much the same, but I for one don't like to think about Mulroney as being part & parcel of the new party.

The Conservative Party that was founded by those dead guys has long ago ceased to exist, it melded with the Progressives to become the Progressive Conservative Party. The PCP itself no longer exists, having been merged with the Canadian Alliance to become the Conservative Party of Canada, with Stephen Harper as one of its founders.

There was no revisionism going on, only a less that complete explanation of what the author was trying to say.

I am not disagreeing with the fine print technicalities, but the absence of details is misleading and deceptive.
