Boy, you couldn't see this coming a mile away...
MONTREAL (CP) - An angry deputy leader of the federal Conservatives said the newly merged party is in real jeopardy and expressed reservations about having helped to unite the right.

I should have taken bets on how long this party would last.
The fight that's happening today among the CPC is the 80's style boxing matches over who's brand of right wing ideology will prevail and define conservatism in Canada.
I don't envy Harper's postition. Any move to the centre and he'll suffer the wrath of the party's radical wing. Any move father to the right will alienate the former PC's and voters east of Manitoba, not to mention that a moderate Conservative Party would look a whole lot like the governing Liberals. To me this doesn't sound like much of a choice.
I don't know about you, but given that choice, I'd rather go with the devil I know.
