TORONTO, Jan 20 (LifeSiteNews) – Ontario Premier Mike Harris’ campaign wizard, Tom Long, has bid adieu to the federal Tories in his article in the January 18 National Post. The article is causing concern among social conservatives who fear Long’s involvement in the United Alternative may be to transform it into a clone of the fiscal conservative only Harris regime.

Critics note that although most Reformers and UA supporters might agree with much of this fiscal agenda, nowhere in Long’s article is there any mention of also providing a political alternative to the anti-family, anti-life and social left-wing, Liberal, Tory and NDP parties. This reflects the Harris government’s ideology which is fiscal conservative and   establishment leftist on social issues. It contradicts the overwhelming social, as well as fiscal conservatism of delegates to last year’s UA convention in Ottawa.
