I'm not sure if there's a point in this page since everything here is covered in the Progressive Conservative entry.

have expanded article.

"Historic" means "precious because old" (an historic church) or "around which the course of history turns" (an historic day). This is the "historical" (being a part of history) CPC. I'll move it. - Montréalais


Montrealais must have forgotten, as the above comment was from 2004. I have renamed it. Shawn in Montreal (talk) 06:01, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Actually, just to be clear, Montréalais in fact did make exactly the article move he proposed in the above comment, which was a change of the disambiguator from "historic" to "historical". It is in fact the correct title here, because this is an article about a distinct historical entity which no longer exists, and not the history of the current Conservative Party of Canada — "History of the Conservative Party of Canada" would only be the correct title if we were to merge this, the PCs, Reform and the Canadian Alliance into a single article.

Merger proposal[edit]

  • National Government (Canada) was a moniker used just once by the Tories in 1940, and I believe it would be helpful to people interested in the history of the Tories to merge that stub article into here. Shawn in Montreal (talk) 15:21, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
I would even go so far as to suggest merging this with Progressive Conservative Party of Canada. The two articles are about the same party before and after a name change. I don't think that changing a party's name really warrants a new article. —Arctic Gnome (talkcontribs) 09:19, 15 December 2011 (UTC)


If the Conservatives campaigned on a promise to end the depression by higher tariffs how can this article describe their economic policy to have been laissez-faire as tariffs are a major impediment to free trade and market? -- (talk) 04:08, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
