United right could be contender, poll says. OTTAWA — A united right-wing party would be a strong threat to form the next federal government, a new opinion poll suggests, providing added pressure on the Progressive Conservatives and the Canadian Alliance to form a union.
Perhaps what the public is looking for is simply, as the article says, an alternative to the Liberals? Do Canadians actually know what a "united right" would look like? It’s a mistake to think that PC and Alliance supporters are simply looking for the parties to "pull it together" as Chuck Strahl suggests. I could never vote for a party that is committed to the kinds of changes in our democracy that the Alliance espouses.
