Vancouver Centre Progressive Canadian candidate raises alarm, English Bay spill.
 
For Immediate Release April 10, 2015
 
 
Vancouver, B.C. - Michael Huenefeld, Progressive Canadian (PC Party) Vancouver Centre candidate in the 2015 election and 2011 candidate-of-record today raised the alarm against the claw-back of environmental protection and risk to public safety evidenced by the English Bay oil spill.
 
Mr. Huenefeld observed: "Claw-backs of resources ranging from shutting down the Kitts Beach Coast Guard station and reduced transport regulation implicated in the Lac Megantic disaster to silencing or firing Canadian government environmental scientists are already concerns.  The tanker oil spill in English Bay here in Vancouver this week is alarming.  It's a wake-up call.
 
Why do we not seem to have been better prepared?  Increased tanker traffic in Vancouver, already one of the busiest ports in the world, is going to continue.  Yet the Harper government is back-tracking on the positive record on the environment of the Mulroney Progressive Conservative government which worked with environmentalists like Elizabeth May.
 
Unlike the Harper Conservative party created in 2003, Progressive Canadians are calling for the same activist role on the environment we, as Progressive Conservatives, played by properly funding environmental science and protections at home and internationally, for example in securing US participation in the Rio Conference and Montreal Protocol on ozone."
 
Michael Huenefeld's remarks were echoed by South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale PC Party candidate-of-record Brian Marlatt who added, "We face the same kinds of threat all along the BC coast whether here in South Surrey-White Rock where new shoreline US coal train traffic poses an alarming threat to the coastline itself, to wildlife, and to our community or in Kitimat's deep fiord  where a dilbit spill from Northern Gateway would be even more devastating than bunker or light crude that floats - dilbit would coat the seafloor for generations."
 
The Progressive Canadian Party Leader is The Hon. Sinclair Stevens.

By-Elections show 'new' Conservative Party unelectable, PC Party Leader says.


For Immediate Release: December 11, 2017. 
 
Niagara Falls, Ont - “The big story tonight is coming out of the by-election in South Surrey-White Rock and it is the complete collapse, the failure at last, of ‘unite-the-right’ in Canada,” Progressive Canadian Party Leader, and former Progressive Conservative MP, Joe Hueglin said as Elections Canada reported key poll results in the British Columbia riding, long considered a safe seat for the ‘Harper’ Conservatives.

South Surrey-White Rock has been held by Progressive Conservatives, Reform, the Canadian Alliance, and the ‘Harper’ Conservatives since 1972, although electoral boundaries and the riding name have changed several times.  The riding was cited in ‘unite-the-right’ politics to justify the PC-CA merger schemed by Stephen Harper and Peter MacKay which had little affect other than to remove the Progressive Conservative party from the ballot, Tory loyalists in the Progressive Canadian Party insist.

The South Surrey-White Rock by-election was called when former Conservative Party star candidate Dianne Watts left the BC seat after near defeat in 2015 as ‘new’ Conservative support began to collapse and only two years as an MP to pursue a career in provincial politics.

“South Surrey-White Rock was one of the safest of safe seats in Canada.” Hueglin said, “That’s gone.”

”The meaning for national politics and the future of the ‘new' Conservative Party is in the poll results,” Hueglin said.  “The message in all four by-elections to former Tories is that ‘unite-the-right’ is unelectable.  It’s time to move on.”

“Our Progressive Canadian candidate in South Surrey-White Rock, Michael Huenefeld, campaigned bravely despite an absence of media coverage frustrating voter choice, earning few votes but Tory voices persist.  Sir John A.’s “progressive Conservative” principles are electable, Harper’s neoconservative politics are not.  It’s time to rebuild the Tory party of Confederation.  It’s Canada 150,” Mr. Hueglin added.

The Progressive Canadian Party was founded as a continuation of the policy, principles and political outlook of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada.  The PC Party was founded by Progressive Conservatives who found the ‘new’ Conservative Party unsupportable and believed the merger with the Canadian Alliance would soon become unelectable, an ideological movement rather than a party open to all Canadians and to Progressive Conservatives. 

“We offer leadership and renewed direction by example,” in the view of Brian Marlatt, current South Surrey-White Rock PC Party campaign chair and four time candidate in the riding.  

“Our Leader until recently was the late Hon. Sinclair Stevens, who served in the Mulroney and Clark cabinets. Our candidates have included former Tory Science Minister, the Hon. Heward Graffety. Our current Leader is former Tory MP Joe Hueglin.  The ‘new’ Conservatives are led by Andrew Scheer from the Canadian Alliance and ran a former Canadian Alliance candidate in South Surrey-White Rock, losing the riding.  Canadians can see who is Tory and what is electable in the future, and it isn’t the Canadian Alliance and Reform party politics,” Marlatt concluded.

Progressive Canadian candidates playing a positive role in Canadian politics: Leader 

For Immediate Release:
Burlington, Ontario, Friday the Thirteenth, September 2019 –  Progressive Canadian Party Leader Joe Hueglin has made the following observations on the federal election, the tone of politics today, and the role of the PC Party. 

Progressive Canadian Party candidates are playing a positive role in Canada's 43rd General Election.

Many expect the election called September 11, 2019 will see a "donnybrook" follow, a "scene of riotous disorder, heated argument." Media reports and polls suggest more voters than usual are unsettled by the choices available to them and that party standing in parliament at dissolution is of little interest.

The hyper-partisanship of the last parliament, despite the promise of “sunny ways,” and negative politics of the Harper years is expected to continue as constituency candidates from parties of the last parliament fan out across Canada offering voters the same negative politics and spin-crafted talking points heard in the House of Commons.

PC Party candidates listen.  We  want to address positively seldom discussed issues of importance to all Canadians where they live.  To address issues in national conversations in a positive way . And to do so with the good will and a sense of decency for which Canada and Canadians are justly proud.

Progressive Canadian candidates raise issues and ask questions where progressive action is needed, guided by the enlightened view of the people rather than by protest politics and rancour born of ideology and movement intolerance of other opinion. Issues of concern to the many not just to the few.

Issues and from the perspective of nation-building other candidates have forgotten is the purpose of parliament even when the issue is familiar.


General concerns we raise and issues importance to Canadians we address:

-1- assurance of funding and review of means of delivery of our universal health care system equally in all of Canada, including the means to deliver national pharmacare and autism help;

-2- ensuring post-secondary high school education is available to all Canadians prepared to work to obtain it, whether academic, professions, or trades;

-3- return the role of funding infrastructure to the Bank of Canada rather than by interest earning private institutions;
-4- establish banking services at local post offices, postal banking, according to need;

-5- protection of the environment by growing sustainable resources and renewable energy infrastructure, rather than protest politics and conflict;

-6- act to mitigate the effects of climate change on rivers, shorelines, species at risk, and the loss of permafrost in Canada's North;

-7- democratic and parliamentary reform that will serve the people rather than the interest of movements and parties.
