Mulroney owes conservatives 35 dollars
The Harper conservative party will absolutely continue to accept former progressive conservative prime minister Brian Mulroney as a member, provided that he ponies up the $35 for a five-year membership card.
This confirmation by the Harper conservative party president Don Plett came about after intervention by Harpers defense minister Peter MacKay. A staunch supporter and personal, friend of the former prime minister, MacKay thought Mulroney should be granted a lifetime membership, similar to the ones issued by the former progressive conservative party.
Unfortunately he did not offer to pay the thirty-five bucks on Mulroney’s behalf or state whether he would renew his own membership in the future.
Maybe we need to get a fund started to keep Mulroney an active member of Harpers conservatives.
