April 26, 2004
As a measure of how far a party will go in the service of pragmatism over principle, the Conservative Party of Canada has done a 180-degree turnaround. In pledging official support of the Westbank First Nations Self-Government Agreement, Conservative leader Stephen Harper may have put a more moderate face on his party, but at what cost?
