It would be the smartest political move Peter MacKay has ever made..

..if these rumours are true, and he is looking for a way to quietly exit the federal Conservative party. Why risk going down with a sinking ship? As the article says. it allows him to make another run at the Federal Conservative leadership if they are defeated in the next election.

Who knows – if Harper were to resign after a defeat, Peter MacKay mighty actually find that “Red Tory”/Progressive Conservative streak in him that he supposedly has – because it’s been hidden while Harper has been leader. He might actually bring some much needed moderation and moderates back into the CPC.

    The phrase “damned with faint praise” comes to mind.

    [MacKay] might actually bring some much needed moderation and moderates back into the CPC.

    I was at a debate during the 2003 P.C. Party leadership campaign. The issue of marijuana came up. All of the candidates favoured de-criminalisation, except for MacKay, who called grass a dangerous “gateway drug” (to a chorus of amused groans from the audience).

    Moderate? Pfft. MacKay makes Myron Thompson look like Robert Stanfield. There are no moderates in the CPC; they’ve all been purged.
