Provincialism v. municipal localism
Conservatives believe Gloria Kovach lost her post as head of the national municipal association because of political interference on the part of Stephan Dion and the Liberal Party. Perhaps however, as soon as she declared herself a federal Conservative candidate, the association realized that since Conservatives are provincialists whose policies routinely oppose the expansion of local democracy, Gloria's interest was in her own personal advancement, rather than the advancement of the democratic localism which is the agenda of the municipal association. Dion had nothing to do with it.
