No, Clark is a progressive. A progressive is a Liberal who cannot stand the Liberal party. The Progressive Conservative Party, by the end of its run, was a party of Liberals who didn't want to be known as Liberals.

The term progressive is itself an oxymoron, when applied to politics. To be progressive is to advocate things that look good in theory, but in practice nobody uses. The closest analogy I can come up with would be to say that progressive is to politics, as medical "progress" like routine epeisiotomies were an "advancement" over simply letting birth happen. Thankfully, such "progress" is being re-evaluated these days.

It wasn't till about Joe Clark's time that the definition of conservative shifted to what some people mean today.

And the Progressive thing is just crap. There was an actual party called the progressives and they did not merge with us. They were very left wing. We just happened to poach one of their Premiers who had a bit of common sense.

Former Progressive mostly became CCFers.

Even Joe Clark doesn't deserve to be called a NDPer.
