Yesterday it was Provincial politics. Today it’s Federal.
I’ve already annoyed a bunch of people by saying this, but we have a problem. Currently we don’t have a Conservative party in Canada. We have a party that calls itself Conservative. But it isn’t.
The current Conservative Party of Canada is actually the Corporate Party of Canada. This causes problems for someone like myself who is a Conservative, and is looking on in horror at what their party is doing.
But it isn’t my party any more. It’s been hijacked. What was my party, has undergone a hostile take over.
Oh, there are still some Conservatives in the party. I know several of them, and some of them are still in positions of power in Ottawa. It’s possible that one or more of them might even end up in a place to take over the party, and steer it back onto the right track.
Possible, but not likely. Not unless the rest of us, who want a real Conservative Party, are willing to attempt to take back our party.
Are we willing to do that? Or do we need to form a new party to replace the current mess?
I don’t know. I’m curious that no one else appears to have noticed this. I made this point to one of the few people who I regard as a real Conservative in Ottawa about this time last year. He thinks that I’m over reacting. But he can’t explain why every piece of legislation tabled benefits the corporate sector.
