Sean Speer: The key question to ask would-be Conservative party leaders | National Post

"How will you grow the party's base of support?"

Quite correct.

This is almost the opposite of , who ran an incrementalist government, but was perceived as an extreme .

The confusion of the media and the public offers an opportunity for ; he can make right-wing promises to gain support within the party, while being perceived as a centrist overall.

It is frustrating to see portrayed as being on the left of the party. When the split in the 1990s into the , and the old party, the split was principally about Québec and , not about left and right economically or socially. Consequently, those who remained PCs had a wide ideological spectrum; Mr. MacKay, though a Progressive Conservative, was no progressive.

God dispenses relative goods as he sees fit, in order to help man find his way to the final good of eternal life with him."
