So what happens now?

So it seems the Coalition has backed down for at least a while, and may eventually give up on its plans, but who knows? The developments of the last couple of days don't really affect the intent of our campaign, and we'll be ready and waiting to see what happens next!

Thanks for your continued support

Message from a Conservative MP

Who obviously must remain anonymous.

I have to say I was skeptical about this blog to begin with, coming as it does at a time when party unity must be paramount in all our minds. This evening, however, I am less certain of this. As you may know, the Cabinet today was forced to vote to prorogue Parliament to avoid an opposition coalition, while the Conservative caucus voted against the prorogation. I cannot help but think that, if Jim had been leader, the Cabinet vote would not have been whipped as it was, and caucus would have been properly consulted. In that light, if things go the way it's looking, I will be supporting Jim as the best man for the leadership job. Keep up the good work.

Open Letter to David Higginbottom

Conservatives for Prentice want to express our sincere apologies for the awkward position that we have placed David Higginbottom in. Many of us have had the pleasure of knowing and working with him for a few years now and we know that he is a man of the utmost decency and loyalty.

As he expressed on this blog, the Conservatives for Prentice campaign has put him and other members of the Calgary Centre--North Conservative EDA in a very difficult position. Even though all of us feel strongly that Mr. Prentice would unequestionably be the perfect choice for the next Conservative Leader, understandably many people are not able to openly express this.

We can not express enough that we do not wish to divide the party, our intentions are simply to prepare for the future in the face of a potential illegitimate NDP-Liberal coalition.

Again, we apologize to Mr. Higginbottom
