In a release Thursday, Charles McVety, the head of the 148,000-member Institute for Canadian Values lobby group, warned Conservatives who had previously sought the support of his organization were about to renege on commitments to uphold key principles.

Meanwhile, a group of prominent Conservatives, including former Canadian Alliance leader Stockwell Day and Ontario Progressive Conservative Leader Patrick Brown, are set to discuss developing new policy positions on climate change later Friday.

"The folly of becoming a 'Liberal light' party is it leads to complete and utter failure at the ballot box," the release from McVety's group said. "If conservative grassroots don't like the party platform, they don't vote."
