For Immediate Release:
Nanaimo, BC, and Niagara Falls, Ont, April 10, 2019 –   Brian Marlatt is the Progressive Canadian candidate in the Nanaimo-Ladysmith by-election, May 6, 2019.  Brian Marlatt’s candidacy was confirmed by Elections Canada today according to PC Party interim leader and former Progressive Conservative MP Joe Hueglin.

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.

Brian Marlatt, who was nominated earlier this month as the PC Party candidate in the May 6, 2019 Nanaimo-Ladysmith by-election, is a writer, researcher and public policy analyst.  He has worked as a manager in a family business, Paramount Distributors, prior to an academic leave-of-absence and assuming family health care responsibilities when his father suffered a major spinal cord injury.

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.

Brian Marlatt has contributed to the Elections Canada Advisory Committee of Political Parties (ACPP) and EC OGI Steering Committee.  In June 2018, he presented a brief to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs (PROC)concerning Bill C-76, The Elections Modernization Act, An Act to amend the Canada Elections Act, receiving royal assent December 13, 2018.

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

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.
