ABSTRACT
This article looks at the response and support given to Joe Clark during the Tory leadership convention in 1976. He has taken over from Robert Stanfield as leader of the opposition, and according to polls, he is poised to take over from Pierre Trudeau as Canadian Prime Minister. His victory has been considered as evidence that the Tories will not become a conservative alternative to the Liberals but will remain identical philosophically. According to delegates and party insiders, It appeared that Clark won because he was an effective campaigner who emphasized fiscal responsibility and the decentralization of power.
