“In 1867, Benjamin Disraeli defined progressive as Sir John A. would have understood it. 'In a progressive country change is a constant; and the great question is, not whether you should resist change which is inevitable, but whether that change should be carried out in deference to the manners, the customs, the laws and the traditions of the people, or in deference to abstract principles and arbitrary and general doctrines.’
Today we have parties which call themselves progressive but who are really about abstract principles and ideology, and parties that call themselves conservative who are neoliberal, neoconservative, libertarian and corrupt.
Progressive Canadians are Progressive Conservatives; Progressive Conservatives are Progressive Canadians. Mr. Harper’s party is not and wilfully choses not to be progressive conservative.
Integrity Matters. Tip the balance in Ottawa, send PC MPs to Parliament.” - Brian Marlatt, Progressive Canadian Party, South Surrey-White Rock.
A young John A. Macdonald in 1854 defined his intention to create a genuine Tory party, as “progressive Conservative” and why :
" … our aim..[he said] should be to enlarge the bounds of our party so as to embrace every person desirous of being counted as a “progressive Conservative”, and who will join in a series of measures to put an end to the corruption which has ruined the present government and debauched all its followers."
”Sir John A. Macdonald defined the choices for Canadians in the 2015 election,” the PC Party candidate in South Surrey-White Rock said.
