5. They were Progressive Conservatives back in the mid to late 20th Century.

They are the Conservative Party of Canada. Basically a populist conservative party split the PCs in the 1990s and they were out of power for a while. Then they merged. The rightwing in the US had no patience for the word Progressive I am sure. Now the Conservatives try the odd Trump play and get tortured by the public in most of canada. Kenney of Alberta had to back down from allowing people, two weeks ago, diagnosed with an active covid infection from mixing freely with the public. So they try to be Trump and then retreat. Right now there is a federal election and the Conservatives came out spending money like crazy on government programs. So that is their play now. That being said the Conservatives in Nova Scotia just won a provincial election yesterday. Their win was based on healthcare and big spending to fix it. Ford in Ontario ran as a populist and after strong arming education cuts was hated after a year in power. He's stuck himself like glue to Trudeau on Covid policy to try and be popular again. This dirty "Invoice" trick will not help him. But the election to watch right now is the federal one. Ontario election is not this year. When they were called the PCs they were sincere in wanting to win elections with union votes. Then Reagan came along and our Conservatives handed their brains, and worse hearts, to the GOP. I voted for the PCs in my first election because I fell for the debt propaganda my father fell for too. We had both been Liberals all our lives.

7. The word 'progressive' was & is lipstick on a pig when referring to the conservatives

They were crap in the 1980's and they're crap now.

Mulroney killed our vaccine mfg and made all kinds of cuts to public transport funding in the 80's.

Like Applegrove mentioned they were non-party status afterwards until they merged with right wing fringe parties.

As I said to my wife, the PC's used to be just crooks.

Now they're crooks and nazis.
