Ten Reasons Why Canada's Conservative Party isn't very conservative

There's a contest being held at ThePolitic:

Submit your suggestions for the top ten un-conservative things the Conservative Party of Canada has done since their election in 2006.

and win a signed copy of Mark Steyn's book, America Alone.

I thought about it a moment and submitted this list:

  1. Bailing out the automobile manufacturers.

  2. Not doing a thing about the infamous Section 13 of the HRCs.

  3. Not doing much of anything to shrink the federal government and its associated spending.

  4. Not seemingly doing much to reduce the endless grants to most every sector of our society.

  5. Not attempting to either shut down the CBC or even force a people/content change there.

  6. Not pushing for some degree of choice when it comes to health care insurance.

  7. Caving in (at least on the surface) to the Global Warming "religious" fanatics.

  8. Doing nothing to decrease the endless taxes when it comes to airline travel.

  9. Not doing anything substantial to reduce income tax - see #3 above.

  10. Other than Jason Kenney, not doing much to dismantle the destructive & divisive multiculturalist policies of Trudeaupia. We are all Canadians, not hyphenated citizens!

12. Harper not replying, "let them go bankrupt", when Duceppe asked "what would you do about companies that are not profitable?"
