    i really don't want to hear the word "liberal" in connection with harper's tories.

    the former red tories, alright.  they're fiscally conservative and socially liberal.  but they have been almost entirely subsumed by the social conservatives of the former reform party.  also, the conservatives don't have the very right wing of your republicans because canada just isn't as evangelically religious.

    but if canadians overall were not a socially liberal people, the conservative party would be much worse.  they simply cannot get away with their hearts' desire because then they'd never even get elected to a minority government.  but they do keep quietly chipping away at our rights, and while most of us look to the US system of government with some horror, they admire it.  harper basically salivated over bush.
