The content of this page (re: Frum) needs to be completely re-written. As it stands it is severely biased and not very accurate.


True enough. It doesn't cite anywhere near enough sources. I'll robably get around to it sometime later.


I have started to tidy this page up. Added his books list, links to his bio and removed unreferenced claims such as links to Hollinger. This still needs further work as well as tidying up the canadian statements.--Bob Burton 14:37, 30 Dec 2004 (EST)

-- I have relocated this section here -- in part because there are no references but also because the bulk of it is really off the topic for a personal profile. I'll see if I can find a ref and add a brief statement in on his role in Canada - if not will leave this section here --Bob Burton 22:40, 6 Jan 2005 (EST)

He also attempted unsuccessfully to "unite the right" in Canada, where from 1993 to 2003 the (supposed) "right-wing vote" was "split" between theProgressive Conservative Party of Canada and the Reform, then Canadian Alliance) Party. In early 2004 these parties merged into the Conservative Party of Canada but many key PCs, including ex Prime Minister of Canada Joe Clark and recent leadership candidates Scott Brison, Jim Prentice and David Orchard, declared neutrality, attempted to keep the PC party alive, or shifted to the Liberal Party of Canada. Over-closeness of the new party to the US neo-conservative movement was often cited as a factor in this very public rift. When former Alliance leader Stephen Harper gained the leadership of the new party, this view was reinforced: Harper had advocated that Canada join directly in the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a very unpopular stance with all but a few business and sports figures.

SiberioS and others, this article is quite ok now, more factual, less argumentative. Perhaps my 'complaining' paid off.
