"Tories in name and nothing else," said a headline on the front of Friday's Globe and Mail. The story was about the meeting between Britain's new Tory prime minister, David Cameron, and Canada's allegedly Tory PM, Stephen Harper.
"The two men are united only by the word Tory," the Globe's writer asserted. Actually, while this is true in a sense, and while Cameron sounds as if he actually may be a Tory in one historical sense of the word, Harper is not. He's no Tory, and he's no Conservative either.
