What's left of the united right
Around 2003, Stephen Harper engineered the merger between the old Progressive Conservatives (led by Peter MacKay) and the Canadian Alliance (originally the Reform Party.) It was not a coalition, which involves power-sharing. And given what's happened to the constituent parts, it probably wasn't much of a merger either. If you consider the evidence, there's not much left of the ingredients of the merger/takeover, on either side.
Brian Mulroney. Exiled.
Friends, former employees of Mulroney. In big trouble.
Stockwell Day. Gone.
Tom Flanagan. In the doghouse, because of his book.
What's left of that merger/takeover? Well, there's Stephen Harper. And his Mike Harris friends. But the stalwarts of the parties he took over or even helped found? Lost along the way, apparently.
