Will the Progressive Conservative Party become, once more, a viable national force—or will it wither on the vine and disappear forever from the national scene with negative results for Canada and Canadians? It is the author’s contention that there is no use crying about one-party rule and blaming the Liberals. One-party rule has come about largely because of the weakness of the conservative party in leadership, organization, and fundraising. Canadians are worried. They want to return to the two-party system as quickly as possible. Longtime MP Heward Grafftey (who served as a cabinet minister in the Clark government) tells the inside story of the Progressive Conservative Party’s fall from grace and outlines bold strategies that would rebuild the party, and once again unite the country and eliminate alienation in the West and Quebec.
