Joe Clark was assaulted on a downtown Montreal street last month by a man who asked if he was the past prime minister before punching him in the face and leaving him with a bloody nose.


Too bad that an ex-PM is treated this way. Looks like the guy needs some friends to protect him. If he had not been walking alone this wouldn't have happened.

How about it. Should we invite him to the next CPC get together and let by-gones be by gones. An elder statesman to replace Mulroney perhaps?

I don't condone violence and it is unfortunate Clark was assaulted. I hope the person who did so is brought to justice.

Clark is a political maladroit who failed as a Prime Minister, failed to be effective in opposition and vehemently argued against uniting the right. Clark would bring nothing to the Conservative Party but strife and dissension. His presence as an elder statesman is neither needed nor desirable.

Many people who once opposed the merger of the PCs and CA have come around to the fact that it has been a good idea. Some, like Joe Clark, continue to vehemently campaign against us. The man is a millstone around the neck of the conservative movement of the country - no one as short sighted and irrelevant as him should be allowed back in, not that he even wants to.

There are few Canadian politicians I truly dislike (Trudeau springs to mind) but for Joe Clark I reserve special treatment.

I hope they find and charge the guy who punched him... he deserves jail time.

As for Clark... he's still not welcome in my Conservative Party, simply because of the damage he's tried to do to us. The day he gets let back in is the signal that it's time for me to check out.

Jail time for punching someone? Come on. What kind of panzy society is this. If we had more "enforcers" on the streets we wouldn't have so many annoying people.

I've been out of my car in traffic pounding on the window of idiot motorists twice in the last three months. If their doors hadn't been locked they would have a bloody nose too.

Clark belongs in the history books like a bad memory. The guy who punched him is long gone never to be seen again. Turn the page Joe. Too bad he doesn't have a wife like Aline Chretien to protect him. :evil:

If the PCs listened to Joe, we would not have a Conservative government today. The right would still be divided and the Liberals would be in government forever.

I guess it's unanamous. I've been pretty critical of him in the past and I let one punch in the face make me feel sorry for the guy. I guess I need a punch upside the head. It beats me how he could call himself PC and not have one Conservative bone in his body.

Notice when he was in Mulroney's governemnt he was never in an economic portfoilio. Didn't want him raising the tax on gas again I guess. :lol:

Why invite a liberal into the party? I can't think of one conservative policy he has.

I'm surprised it was unanimous. For some reason, I thought a couple of the old PC crowd would throw in a vote the other way...

Despite the fact that I'm happy he got punched in the nose I don't have a problem with him rejoining the party. Hold a press conference where he admits that Harper has proven to be a strong Prime Minister and he's back. I don't have a problem with people who admit their mistakes.

Gee Craig you couldn't award me enough points to have a neutral reputation again? The Red Star is burning my eyes every time I see it. :wink:

I would rather not have Clark rejoin. He is a destablizing influence. I never agreed with his Charlottetown Accord either. He was one of the politicians who tried to scare Canadians into voting yes in the referendum by saying the country would tear apart. Half of Ontarians actually bought that crap but we are still here...

No, we shouldn't. He was outspoken from the outset and even sided with the Liberals. He kicked himself out. Also, nobody will replace Brian Mulroney as an elder statesman. He'll be just fine. It's amazing how some of us are already turning out backs on him. I most certainly will not.

Joe Clark is not welcome. That being said, the individual who punched him should be charged with assault and thrown immediately into the slammer. Nobody deserves that.

Nobody deserves a punch in the face?!?

I know dozens of people who deserve a bloody nose.
