"It's in the interest of all Conservatives - Progressive Conservatives and the latter-day group - to come together in support of common principles," Mulroney said in an interview with The Canadian Press.Zing! Yes, friends...and the latter-day group, whatever your name is, you're welcome too.
"This is an evening of friendship, so everybody's welcome."
CBC got in on the rift-mending too:
"Former prime minister Brian Mulroney has spoken out publicly for the first time about his rift with Prime Minister Stephen Harper.That hatchet is truly buried now. Somewhere. I mean, can't you feel the love?
In an interview with CBC News, Mulroney said he is not concerned about the loss of Harper's friendship.
'He severed relations with me, which, when you've been prime minister, doesn't really mean very much to you. There's nothing that I worry about [that] Mr. Harper can or cannot do,' Mulroney said. 'That's his decision.'"
