The Progressive Canadian Party was founded by Progressive Conservatives who foresaw that the ‘new’ Conservative party formed after the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada was removed from the ballot in the  2003 hostile takeover of the Tories by the Reform Party’s ‘Canadian Alliance,’ led by Stephen Harper, would not be a “merger” or Progressive Conservative.  Key PC Party members have included Mr. Hueglin, former Tory Treasury Board president and Industry  minister, the Hon. Sinclair Stevens, and Science minster, the Hon. Heward Grafftey.

Brian Marlatt was a member of the Progressive Conservative Policy Advisory Committee reporting to the PC’s BC Executive Council from 1998-2003.

He also contributed to market introduction of proprietary, two-way voice technology patented by Paramount’s sister company, Paramount Systems, designed for the security industry and for use in health care to assist the physically challenged.

A Progressive Canadian candidate in South Surrey-White Rock in 2015 and before 2012 electoral boundaries redistribution, he has since moved to Vancouver Island.
