Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts outing as a CPC candidate in South Surrey-White Rock will be thoughtful and a positive contribution to debate. She is right to say that one of the first things you learn quickly in politics is that people are not always what they appear to be. That is true of the Harper neo-Conservatives who remain the Reform Party – provincialist, continentalist and neoconservative, not Tory and Progressive Conservative.
Progressive Canadians are Progressive Conservatives, the party of Confederation, of nation-building, national vision and national unity.
As the Tory candidate (PC party) in South Surrey-White Rock, I am happy to say cordially to Mayor Watts, welcome to national politics.
