Under the Sun


“The governing party has no consistent or explicit ideological framework. Rather, it straddles the middle and assimilates what is expedient at either, or both, sides of the centre. Opposition parties, left, right, or centre, have a problem in defining their own position because the government party occupies all desirable ground. Arguments between parties become, as a result, squabbles over details rather than arguments over direction and principles”

Ned Franks, The Parliament of Canada, 1987
