Exactly whet Reform Party policies on social conservatism were so shocking to your progressive principles??
I ask, because I was a member.......and I don't believe there was much in the platform that was anachronistic......perhaps you could enlighten me/
Unless my suspicions are accurate; that you are a victim of the smears painted on Reform...........that you drank the kool aid without hesitation.
The point is the Liberals under Ignatieff were still playing the same game Chretien played against Reform, when MPS were instructed to call out "racist" in the House whenever a Reform MP was speaking. A campaign that was carried on with gusto by the News dept of CBC Radio. (the Ministry of Truth)
Then they have the gall of accusing the Conservatives of lowering the tone of debate.
