    Progressive Conservative Leader John Tory said today he can’t believe voters are willing to set the bar so low by returning Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty to office for four years. “It’s as if the people are saying it’s okay to have a low standard of behaviour for politicians,” Tory said on radio station CFRB this morning as he tried to explain how his campaign got derailed and how the Liberals’ “dishonesty” trumped his effort to change the tone of politics in Ontario. Two polls released yesterday show the Liberals walking towards a majority government and his PC Party finishing a...

    The Conservative Party long ago decided that too much talk of the British way of life, like too much loud opposition to immigration, made them sound crypto-racist. That left the patriotism card for Labor to play. Indeed, as the Conservative Party has moved rapidly to the left, whole swathes of policy have been left open for Labor. Cameron is greener-than-thou, positively enthusiastic about public spending and skeptical of George W. Bush.

    Canadian Activist: Marriage Vote Signals Conservative Party's Abandoned Values By Chad Groening December 8, 2006 (AgapePress) - A Canadian pro-family activist admits he is bitterly disappointed that the Conservative government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper failed to restore traditional marriage to the people of Canada on Thursday. The vote was 175-123 against Harper's resolution calling for marriage to once again be defined strictly as a union between one man and one woman. The liberal Globe and Mail newspaper began an article on the vote with a bold pronouncement: "Same-sex marriage is here to stay." Although pro-family leader Brian Rushfeldt, executive...

    The other day, the guy on my local radio station mentioned that The Passion of The Christ was the Number One movie in America. ‘So congrats to Mel Gibson,’ he said. ‘And it’ll probably hold on to the Number One slot until the new Starsky & Hutch opens.’ It’s always useful to keep things in proportion. But, in fact, Starsky & Hutch opened and The Passion cleaned its clock. Last weekend, it took in $51.4 million, as against S&H’s $29.05 million. By then, The Passion’s total gross was up around $212 million. Pace my radio guy, mid-Seventies nostalgia is no...
