The Star's article listed several things that Harper would do. Let us analyze these.

- more two-tier health care: Wrong.

the end of the Kyoto accord on climate control:
Absolutely correct. It's a scam. If it were so good, then Ontario's auto industry would not have used their political connections to be exempted.

-more reliance on the private sector: a little vague.

- the roll-back of policies on linguistic minorities: on ineffective and costly policies, yes, as they should be.

- employment equity: possible

- regional development: yes, since it doesn't work.

- multiculturalism: same

- aboriginal rights: They would replace the policies with ones that actually helped them.

Internationally, Clark cautions, Harper would follow the hardline policies of U.S. President George W. Bush:

as opposed to what, some intangible and indefinite "third way"? In the past 10 years, the Liberals have only deviated from the US once, and that was on Iraq. Even then, I'm not convinced this was entirely so. One can never trust Jean the Crook and his mob of henchmen.
