In October 1994 Government House Leader was added to his responsibility. In May 1996, Day was made Minister of Social Services, and in March 1997, he became Treasurer.

Leadership of the Canadian Alliance

In 2000, Day decided to run for leader of the newly-formed Canadian Alliance party. After a heavily-publicized campaign, Day came in first on the June 24 first ballot with about 44% of the vote, in front of former Reform Party leader Preston Manning and Ontario PC strategist Tom Long.

2000 election

Jean Chrétien called a snap election for November 27, 2000. Day's campaign in Southern Ontario stumbled badly in the first days of the campaign. A photo-op at a technology firm meant to illustrate a "brain drain" to the US was undermined when the owner reported that he had moved to Canada from the United States eight years earlier. The next day, at Niagara Falls, he remarked that Canadian jobs were flowing south just like the Niagara River, when in fact the river flows north. Joseph Jacques Jean Chrétien, usually known as Jean Chrétien, PC, QC, BA, LLL, LLD (born January 11, 1934), served as the twentieth Prime Minister of Canada from November 4, 1993 to December 12, 2003. ...

Liberal "Hidden Agenda" ad against Day
Liberal "Hidden Agenda" ad against Day

During the campaign, there was increased scrutiny of Day's fundamentalist Christian beliefs (he is a devout Pentecostal), and past comments about homosexuality and abortion. The Liberals campaigned on Day having a "hidden agenda". Liberal activist Warren Kinsella mocked Day's belief in Young Earth creationism by pulling out a Barney doll during a television interview and stating that "this was the only dinosaur ever to be on Earth with humans". Media covering the Day campaign bus, nicknamed "Prayer Force One", whistled the Flintstones theme song to mock the idea that humans and dinosaurs co-existed.[1] Image File history File links StockDayAd. ...

Further suggestions of a hidden agenda focussed on the Alliance's direct democracy proposals, which were revealed to require a referendum on any proposal supported by a petition signed by 3% of Canadian voters. Some asserted that "special interest" groups would use the low requirements to put contentious subjects to a national referendum. The proposal was satirized by Rick Mercer of This Hour has 22 Minutes who started a mock online petition calling for a referendum on whether Day should change his first name to Doris. The petition garnered more than a million signatures.

Day's campaign was marred by other controversies. In mid-campaign, the Alliance candidate in Winnipeg, Betty Granger, was quoted as voicing concerns about an "Asian invasion" in Canada. And in the televised leaders' debate, Day held up a handwritten sign saying "NO 2-TIER HEALTHCARE" in large letters to counter a Globe and Mail newspaper headline earlier in the campaign.

Day was also a victim of an incident during the election.

Post-election

Further controversies plagued Day following the election. While he had been a government minister in Alberta he wrote a letter to the editor in which he criticized Lorne Goddard, a lawyer and Red Deer school trustee, for defending a man accused of possessing child pornography. In it he wrote that Goddard himself supported child pornography. When Goddard sued for defamation, the Alberta government covered Day's legal bills. In December, the government lawyers settled out of court, but the legal costs and settlement totalled $792,000. Day was criticized for the costs and eventually re-paid the province $60,000, the settlement amount excluding legal fees. Further controversy ensued in February when it was reported that Bennet Jones, the law-firm that had represented Day at tax payer expense, donated $70,000 to the Canadian Alliance Fund days after Day settled. The Alliance launched an internal review that determined that nothing inappropriate had occurred.


In February it was revealed that the Alliance had paid former MP Jim Hart $50,000 to step aside so Day could run in his B.C. riding. Party officials said the money was paid to compensate Hart for expenses that he incurred. The RCMP ruled that no law was broken. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP or Mounties; French, Gendarmerie royale du Canada, GRC) is both the federal police force and the national police of Canada. ...


In April it was reported that Day had approved the hiring of a private investigator to dig up dirt to smear the Liberals. After confirming that he had met the man on April 7, Day denied this on the 8th, claiming on the 9th that he had read of the meeting in the Globe and Mail and had assumed that it was correct. The Liberal Party of Canada (French: Parti libéral du Canada), colloquially known as the Grits (originally Clear Grits), is a Canadian federal political party positioned around the centre to centre-left of the political spectrum, combining a generally progressive social policy with moderate economics. ...


Given the string of negative stories, many Alliance members became increasingly critical of Day's leadership. In late April, several members of Day's Shadow Cabinet, including deputy leader Deborah Grey, resigned their posts. In the following months, Gray and other MPs were ejected from the party for criticising Day. Several of them, led by Chuck Strahl, formed the "Independent Alliance Caucus" during the summer. Day offered an amnesty, but seven of them turned it down and formed the Democratic Representative Caucus led by Grey and Strahl.

In the fall of 2001 Day agreed to step aside and recontest the leadership, and in the March 2002 Alliance leadership election, Day was defeated by Stephen Harper on the first ballot. As a concession to Day, Harper appointed him as Foreign Affairs critic. In March 2003 Day and Harper co-wrote a letter to The Wall Street Journal in which they condemned the Canadian government's unwillingness to participate in the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Day later appeared as a speaker at a "Canadians for Bush" rally in the Niagara region, organized by controversial right-wing minister Tristan Emmanuel.
