For Immediate Release: March 14, 2017

Niagara Falls, Ontario - Progressive Canadian Party Leader and former Progressive Conservative MP for Niagara Falls Joe Hueglin is pleased to announce that Party President, the Rev. Dorian Baxter, is the PC Party candidate in the Markham-Thornhill by-election.

The by-election was called following the retirement from Parliament of the former Member for Markham-Thornhill, the Honourable John McCallum, who was re-elected in the riding on October 19, 2015 but who has now left parliament to serve as Canada’s Ambassador to China.  The by-election will take place on April 3, 2017.

Reverend Baxter was confirmed as the Progressive Canadian candidate in Markham-Thornhill, March 13, 2017.

“Progressive Canadians are Progressive Conservatives,” Rev. Baxter said following his confirmation.  “The PC Party continues to share the Progressive Conservative national vision and policies which reinforce Canada’s parliamentary institutions, democracy and social fabric in areas like health care and education, and our responsibility to our veterans.  Our sense of national vision, policy and values are founded on the belief that Canadian society is best served by a commitment to progressive social policies and to the fiscal responsibility necessary to sustain them.”

Rev. Baxter noted “the importance of a genuine progressive-conservative presence in Canada’s House of Commons” and  that by voting for his candidacy as a Progressive Canadian “we can begin the restoration of the politics of consensus in parliament that is being lost to a hardening of ideology we see in both the “new” Conservative and NDP leadership campaigns.”

“We need to restore the party and principles of the Progressive Conservative Party Sir John A. Macdonald and his successors built, not just to move forward and away from the parliamentary dysfunction of the Harper years, but to continue the work of nation-building with fresh eyes to the future as Canada celebrates 150 years of accomplishment since Confederation,” Rev. Baxter said.

Following the passing of the Honourable Sinclair Stevens, PC, November 30, 2016. former Progressive Conservative MP and Progressive Canadian National Co-ordinator, Mr. Joe Hueglin, has accepted the invitation of PC Party National Council to serve as interim Leader until elections are held as required by the party constitution.

Progressive Canadian Party: The future of Canadian conservativism.
Friday, 20 May 2016 10:44

Progressive Canadian Party:
The future of Canadian conservatism.

For Immediate Release May 20, 2016

Newmarket, Ont. -
The Vancouver Convention of the Conservative Party, beginning May 26, will be a telling moment in the survival of what Preston Manning calls the "conservative movement" and most observers will recognize as the Canadian arm of American neoconservatism.  It will be the first meeting of the movement in Vancouver since the Reform convention in 1997 and the corporate party's first convention since the 2015 defeat.  It is meaningful for former Progressive Conservatives and Progressive Canadians, and indeed for Canadian politics.
 
The election result on October 19, 2015 is reason for members of the new Conservative Party of Canada to think deeply on the future of their party and on whether it really has a place in Canadian political life.

What is clear is that the party formed by the "merger"of the Canadian Alliance and the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada has been rejected by Canadians who now recognize the result of the merger was not the renewed Progressive Conservative party Tory voters have thought they were voting for in elections since 2003.
 
New Conservative Party policy, politics, outlook and direction and political culture have been imported from the Canadian Alliance and its predecessor the Reform Party.  Progressive Conservative policy, politics, outlook and direction and political culture have been pushed aside and ignored.
 
Some former Canadian Alliance members publicly revisited Preston Manning's infamous "The West wants in" diatribe by claiming "The West wants out."  They echo Stephen Harper's firewall federalism, showing their contempt for democracy and insulting all Canadians in all parts of Canada, North, South, East, and West. The party Stephen Harper founded is not about Tory and Canadian conservative principle.
 
Integrity, parliament, and Canada matter: that is the message of the 2015 election. The party once led by Stephen Harper, and previously by Stockwell Day and Preston Manning under other names, fails on all three counts. They framed the ballot question in the 2015 election. Canadians voted to replace the party, leader, and government in power since January 23, 2006.
 
Progressive Conservatives remaining in the new Conservative Party are justified in feeling betrayed by the policy and leadership of the decade old party.  It is time to either bring that party to an end or to create a renewed Progressive Conservative Party of Canada from the ashes of crushing defeat and rejection by Canadian voters.
 
Canadians will watch the Vancouver convention with interest.  Will we see a renewed Tory party or will the party created in 2003 fail to understand the message sent by Canadians on election day 2015?   "Will Conservatives go back to the future, or look forward to the past," as writer Michael Harris has asked?
 
Those of us who share the "progressive Conservative" vision of the Tory party Sir John A. Macdonald first spoke of in 1854 have reason to take heart in the decision of Canadians on October 19, 2015. The national vision of the party of Confederation, of nation-building, and of Sir John A.'s National Dream of One Dominion from Sea to Sea is endorsed by Canadians who see the divisive politics of the last ten years put to rest.
 
Canadians have moved on. It is time for what was purposely called briefly the "Conservative Party" to do so as well.
 
It is time for Progressive Conservatives to come together to restore the vision to the party which first built a strong, united Canada to take heart in the decision of Canadians. It is time to consider a Progressive Conservative alternative.  To present to Canadians the Progressive Canadian Party
 
This continuing "PC Party" exists to provide a principled home for progressive-conservatives who have decided enough is enough, that a Tory party must again become the party offering to Canadians nation-building and national unity.
 
We invite you to join us and we offer you leadership by example of what Sir John A. Macdonald's "progressive Conservative" party should look like to Canadians today.
