The party is led by the thoroughly unadmirable Stephen Harper. He holds an iron grip over his caucus, with Conservative MPs rarely voting against the party line. This may, alternatively, be due to the almost total lack of talent in the Conservative caucus.
The party's base consists of a motley crew of Christian and other religious fundamentalists, beneficiaries of the oil and gas industry, all of the Province of Alberta (probably because there is currently no viable alternative right of center), law and order whackos who believe crime is getting worse despite the statistics showing the opposite, and most of rural Canada.
Led by master puppeteer, Stephen Harper. He's well know for cutting loose the strings of any puppet who doesn't perform for him.
