Vancouver Centre Progressive Canadian candidate raises alarm, English Bay spill.
For Immediate Release April 10, 2015
Vancouver, B.C. - Michael Huenefeld, Progressive Canadian (PC Party) Vancouver Centre candidate in the 2015 election and 2011 candidate-of-record today raised the alarm against the claw-back of environmental protection and risk to public safety evidenced by the English Bay oil spill.
Mr. Huenefeld observed: "Claw-backs of resources ranging from shutting down the Kitts Beach Coast Guard station and reduced transport regulation implicated in the Lac Megantic disaster to silencing or firing Canadian government environmental scientists are already concerns.  The tanker oil spill in English Bay here in Vancouver this week is alarming.  It's a wake-up call.
Why do we not seem to have been better prepared?  Increased tanker traffic in Vancouver, already one of the busiest ports in the world, is going to continue.  Yet the Harper government is back-tracking on the positive record on the environment of the Mulroney Progressive Conservative government which worked with environmentalists like Elizabeth May.
Unlike the Harper Conservative party created in 2003, Progressive Canadians are calling for the same activist role on the environment we, as Progressive Conservatives, played by properly funding environmental science and protections at home and internationally, for example in securing US participation in the Rio Conference and Montreal Protocol on ozone."
Michael Huenefeld's remarks were echoed by South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale PC Party candidate-of-record Brian Marlatt who added, "We face the same kinds of threat all along the BC coast whether here in South Surrey-White Rock where new shoreline US coal train traffic poses an alarming threat to the coastline itself, to wildlife, and to our community or in Kitimat's deep fiord  where a dilbit spill from Northern Gateway would be even more devastating than bunker or light crude that floats - dilbit would coat the seafloor for generations."
The Progressive Canadian Party Leader is The Hon. Sinclair Stevens.

By-Elections show 'new' Conservative Party unelectable, PC Party Leader says.

For Immediate Release: December 11, 2017. 
Niagara Falls, Ont - “The big story tonight is coming out of the by-election in South Surrey-White Rock and it is the complete collapse, the failure at last, of ‘unite-the-right’ in Canada,” Progressive Canadian Party Leader, and former Progressive Conservative MP, Joe Hueglin said as Elections Canada reported key poll results in the British Columbia riding, long considered a safe seat for the ‘Harper’ Conservatives.

South Surrey-White Rock has been held by Progressive Conservatives, Reform, the Canadian Alliance, and the ‘Harper’ Conservatives since 1972, although electoral boundaries and the riding name have changed several times.  The riding was cited in ‘unite-the-right’ politics to justify the PC-CA merger schemed by Stephen Harper and Peter MacKay which had little affect other than to remove the Progressive Conservative party from the ballot, Tory loyalists in the Progressive Canadian Party insist.

The South Surrey-White Rock by-election was called when former Conservative Party star candidate Dianne Watts left the BC seat after near defeat in 2015 as ‘new’ Conservative support began to collapse and only two years as an MP to pursue a career in provincial politics.

“South Surrey-White Rock was one of the safest of safe seats in Canada.” Hueglin said, “That’s gone.”

”The meaning for national politics and the future of the ‘new' Conservative Party is in the poll results,” Hueglin said.  “The message in all four by-elections to former Tories is that ‘unite-the-right’ is unelectable.  It’s time to move on.”

“Our Progressive Canadian candidate in South Surrey-White Rock, Michael Huenefeld, campaigned bravely despite an absence of media coverage frustrating voter choice, earning few votes but Tory voices persist.  Sir John A.’s “progressive Conservative” principles are electable, Harper’s neoconservative politics are not.  It’s time to rebuild the Tory party of Confederation.  It’s Canada 150,” Mr. Hueglin added.

The Progressive Canadian Party was founded as a continuation of the policy, principles and political outlook of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada.  The PC Party was founded by Progressive Conservatives who found the ‘new’ Conservative Party unsupportable and believed the merger with the Canadian Alliance would soon become unelectable, an ideological movement rather than a party open to all Canadians and to Progressive Conservatives. 

“We offer leadership and renewed direction by example,” in the view of Brian Marlatt, current South Surrey-White Rock PC Party campaign chair and four time candidate in the riding.  

“Our Leader until recently was the late Hon. Sinclair Stevens, who served in the Mulroney and Clark cabinets. Our candidates have included former Tory Science Minister, the Hon. Heward Graffety. Our current Leader is former Tory MP Joe Hueglin.  The ‘new’ Conservatives are led by Andrew Scheer from the Canadian Alliance and ran a former Canadian Alliance candidate in South Surrey-White Rock, losing the riding.  Canadians can see who is Tory and what is electable in the future, and it isn’t the Canadian Alliance and Reform party politics,” Marlatt concluded.

The Progressive Canadian Party: A continuing voice of all Canadians PDF Print E-mail

The Progressive Canadian Party:  A continuing voice of all Canadians

Canadians have had two historic choices, Sir John A.  Macdonald's Tory party and Sir Wilfred Laurier's Liberals to speak with the voice of all Canadians. "Liberal, Tory same old story," we were told, reversing the order of precedence, Tory, then Liberal.  The first has been removed from the ballot; the second is struggling to find its identity.

Who speaks for Canada?  All of Canada, sea to sea to sea?  Progressive Canadians in the Tory tradition of Sir John A.  Macdonald. 

The Progressive Canadian Party began and remains in the tradition of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada a party of nation-building, national vision, political philosophy and policy direction expressed through fiscally responsible progressive social policy in the interest of a strong united Canada.

Progressive Canadians believe government must take an active part in the future of  Canada as a nation.  Canada's government, Canada's parliament, must be committed to our future. 

Progressive Canadians believe the Canadian government and parliament must take a leadership role in the life of Canada in the world and in our own destiny, embracing ideas and opportunity, not just sit and wait for what a global marketplace may leave us, or pursue the particular interest of one or some of the provinces, or submit to the tyranny of ideology.

Progressive Canadians continue to share the Progressive Conservative national vision and policies which reinforce Canada's parliamentary institutions, parliamentary democracy and social fabric in areas like health care and education and our responsibility to all of our fellow citizens wherever they live in Canada, regardless of condition, wealth, belief or office equally, all in the national interest because it is the interest of all Canadians.

The vision of Sir John A. Macdonald, Sir George Etienne Cartier and the Fathers of Confederation is as important today to the future of Canada and to Canada's place in the world today as it was in 1867.

The National Dream and the National Policy of Macdonald were visions of his day.  The national vision, the task of nation-building today may be different but it is no less important for our future as a nation.Ten years after the take-over of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada, Mr. Harper's party continues to try to reshape Confederation, Parliament, and Canada around the prejudices of its small Canada origins: provincialism, continentalism, and neoconservatism.

They are a party that is zealous in its ideology and beliefs, an inward-looking movement rather than looking to the future of a strong united Canada with responsibility to all Canadians as a national party

Progressive Canadians instead are forward-looking, embracing change with the wisdom and reliance on our institutions, not just for their antiquity but for their utility in discovering opportunity and ordering opportunities outcomes for the benefit of all Canadians.
The PC Party of today, the Progressive Canadian party, too, understands the wisdom  and the appeal to today's Canadians of the words  Macdonald used to describe the aims of his true Tory party and remains dedicated to them "our aim should be to enlarge the bounds of our party so as to embrace every person desirous of being counted a "progressive Conservative" and who will join in a series of measures to put an end to the Corruption which has ruined the present government and debauched all its followers" (Macdonald to Strachan, February 1854, National Archives).
