The Conservatives move to the centre
Not really. The media narrative is that the party moved to the centre and there doesn't seem to be much reason for this other than the fact that the Conservative Party of Canada endorsed a motion that prevents the party from "supporting" any "regulation" of abortion in the event that they form a government and, to a lesser degree, the party's reconciling itself to official bilingualism (which received much less coverage). But does anyone not expect the MSM to label the Conservatives extremist come the next election? Indeed, regarding abortion, by not making some commitment to either a pro-life or pro-abortion position, the CPC will open itself to charges of a hidden agenda. I hope I'm wrong but I'll bet that time will prove me right. Furthermore, regarding the idea that social conservatives had a bad convention, consider this upbeat analysis from LifeSiteNews.com.

Go to http://www.cbc.ca/politics and click on yesterday evenings broadcast. Scott Reid has not given up the "hidden agenda" charge. If anything it looks like the Liberals will get even more aggressive in the next campaign. It is going to get dirty folks.
