It’s an old Cheap Trick tune, but I’m reminded of it when I read stories like the one below. Seems like quite a few ambitious Conservatives don’t expect Stephen Harper to finish his term, no?
“They’ve won a third consecutive election victory and now control the first Conservative majority in 17 years, but Stephen Harper’s Tories have still found something to quarrel about as they gather for a convention in Ottawa Thursday.
The dispute is as old as the Conservative Party and hints at the fault lines in an organization that was only formed in late 2003 when the Red Tories in the Progressive Conservatives put aside their differences to merge with the right wingers in the Canadian Alliance.“
