    And you’re not conservative in anything but name…

    Neither am I; I’m reactionary…

    Is this the party that is lead by Erin OToole, that has both Brian Pallister and Jason Kenney as Premiers? I think they have dug a very deep hole for themselves.

      Not Kenney – he’s UCP – but Pallister, yes.

        Will S.,
        I think that I need a program. This is wickedly complicated.

        Actually, truth be told, none of the provincial parties are called the Conservative Party of (whatever province); all are either the Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba, Ontario (you forgot to include Doug Ford when you mentioned Kenney and Pallister); except for provinces where they have other names like the United Conservative Party in Alberta, or the Saskatchewan Party in Saskatchewan, etc.

        Reason is, the provincial parties were all related to and affiliated with the national Progressive Conservative Party of Canada, but that party dissolved in the early 2000s when it merged with the Canadian Alliance to rebrand as the Conservative Party; it’s simply that the provincial ones never underwent a rebranding, and they aren’t as directly tied to the new Conservative Party as they were to the PCs before. That said, they’re all the same kind of people, and so it’s just as fair to attack Kenney and Pallister and Ford as it is O’Toole.

    I take it these folks are essentially the Canadian version of the GOP?
