Don't know if Reform had all the answers but they should have stuck to their guns and not joined forces with the PC. Conservatives were likely the ones concerned for their future and eliminated the threat by making Preston Manning a senator and giving him a new look. Smarter, faster.Why is it the “right” keep spitting up all the time because one of them thinks he knows what policies the right needs to get elected??
First we had the Reform party split out because it had all the right answers, and as a result it managed to keep the Liberals on power for 13+ years, but the only way the right got elected again was to combine with their old roots, Conservatives.
Then a similar issue materialized in AB where the Wild Rose party grew up and as a result AB got the NDP Gov elected and the only way the right could get back in was to unite the two right wing parties.
When does the right learn what it takes to lose an election and how to win an election??
You don’t see the Libs or NDP splitting up all the time, they seem to be able to stay with common values but the right just can’t seem to get its crap together and unite around common values and goals.
Hasn’t the Right ever heard of the expression, United we stand, Divided we fall ??
A western party could still vote together with the Conservatives but then it might not.
