Hartley Steward in blaming Joe Clark for the Progressive Conservative Party not uniting with the Alliance displays unbelievable ignorance. The options of joining with the Canadian Alliance or creating a new party have always been and are non-starters among Tories.




The Constitutional of the Party ensures no leader can make unilateral decisions on the party governance. At the National General Meeting in Edmonton last month delegates elected by the membership affirmed their intent to continue the Conservative Party's role of offering an alternative to the Liberals.




Hartley writes Joe Clark "has ensured we will not get the chance to topple this government, I'm thinking, in my lifetime." by not joining with the Alliance. 1, 300 Progressive Conservatives in Edmonton disagreed.
