He is creating more problems as he goes along.
Conservative Party supporters are not uniform in our perspectives. Harper has probably done at least one thing which each of us would heartily disagree with. At the same time I suspect there are many policy moves by Harper which you do support; policies that a Liberal government would not put into place.
Personally I was opposed to Harper's stance on Lebanon, but remain enthusiastic about his moves on senate reform and debt reduction. Like many others I also appreciate his work to reduce the long gun registry and bring more balance to the Supreme Court.
Instead of giving up on the party and the leader, perhaps you could consider the policy changes you are happy about.
Harper did not treat him right, but he had very little time to react to the Blocs motion. Chong showed up his Party leader by exposing his mistake(calling Dion before his own inter-governmental minister). Harpers motion was brilliant though. It does not recognize Quebec as a nation only the Quebecois.
Chong disagreed because he does not agree with Quebec nationalism or nationalism of any sort. So he pouted and made a scene. Maybe he'd prefer Trudeau as his leader instead of Harper. His leadership chances are finished in the CPC because no one in Quebec will vote for him.
The reality is we have to put up with Quebec nationalism until after another Referendum. So we play the game. If we win Quebec will not hold another referendum. If they win ce la vie.
