But maybe it is true that Harper's control over the party is slipping, when one of Harper's favourites cannot bully through a nomination dispute:
Dimitri Soudas, Stephen Harper’s hand-picked executive director of the Conservative Party was dumped by the party Sunday night. The CBC reported just before 9 p.m. that the party’s national council was informed of the dismissal in a conference call. Soudas was at the centre of a storm after openly interfering in a nomination battle in Oakville-North Burlington, where his fiancée Eve Adams is in a tough competition to run for re-election in one of Toronto’s newly created ridings.I'll bet there was more than one f-bomb dropped during that phone call.

Harper's Golden Rule: "Do not upset the base that makes political donations and votes in elections".
Harper is brilliant. The base funds the party and provides stability. Soudas caused a rift between Harper and base. Therefore Soudas has to go. The base stays happy, the party is not split and the money keeps coming in.
