The Battle of the Ontario Progressive Conservatives

With the resignation of Patrick Brown the Ontario Progressive Conservatives are caught in a leadership vacuum. This morning I watched clips of last night's leadership debate. It did not look good.

Calling it "elementary school stuff" would be putting down elementary school kids, who can be quite sophisticated. With the exception of Caroline Mulroney there was no display of real intellect.

That party is in turmoil. To have any chance of pushing out the Kathleen Wynne Liberals, and neutralizing the NDP, the Ontario PC Party has to do better than what they displayed last evening -- at least in those clips. ("The taxpayers of Ontario!" Tell me more. I'd like a little more substance.)
