WINNIPEG - A group of former Manitoba Progressive Conservative party members, disgruntled with the new Conservative party, threw their support behind the Liberals on Monday.


The group includes former national party vice-president Violet Motherall and Olive MacPhail, former co-chair of Joe Clark's 1983 leadership campaign.

"We are concerned that people who have supported the tolerant, moderate Progressive Conservative party may be misled by the name of the new Conservative party," the group said in a release issued on Monday.

"The new party is not the Progressive Conservative party for whom many have worked and voted in the past."
