One of Canada’s real conservatives is screaming mad about the just-announced merger between the so-called Progressive Conservatives and the Canadian Alliance (…for frontal lobotomy & intolerance in the name of rah-rah capitalism & generalized homophobia….). David Orchard, who still clings to an increasingly archaic meaning of the word conserve – ative, is worried, and I can’t say I blame him. Something unpleasant is happening here, with Canadians about to be squeezed between the national Liberals, who all-too-often behave like neo-cons on the provincial level, and a massive modernized so-called conservative party that’s just dying to be Canada’s answer to American neo-conservatism. The NDP is fast diminishing in all this. Oy.
