Peter MacKay is a Canadian Conservative politician. He formerly led the centrist Progressive Conservative Party of Canada before merging with Harper's center-right, Canadian Alliance in 2003. MacKay has been criticized as being too liberal but his support by conservatives has risen because he has taken a strong stance against the Taliban and strongly supports Canada's mission in Afghanistan. He was elected as an MP from the Province of Nova Scotia. He was Deputy Leader of the New Conservative Party after the merge and served in Harper's cabinet as foreign affairs minister, and current serves as Minister of National Defence. [Who says?]
