I'm curious what the general consenus is on this question: it accurate and fair to describe the Conservative Party of Canada as fascist? I'm not sure if this is the best explanation of fascism, but consider "Fascism Anyone?" by Laurence W. Britt. Doesn't that fit the Conservative Party and their agenda?
In no other country has organized business had more control of the public agenda than in Canada. And in no country outside the United States have American multinational corporations had more impact on public policy.
Shortly after the party executive appointed him party leader at the end of last year, Ignatieff turned down the opportunity to become prime minister of a Liberal led coalition with the NDP. The man the party caucus and executive chose to lead them proceeded to back the Harper Conservative government.
The Ignatieff Liberals have given Stephen Harper and the Conservatives a clear route to a majority government. Here’s how it will happen, unless Harper does something stupid again.
To achieve a majority, Harper needs to win seats in Quebec. He failed to get his majority in the last election, in part, because he alienated Quebec voters who then supported the Bloc.
