Milloy: Ontarians ought to be concerned about recent PC party infighting

John Milloy QP Briefing - January 5, 2018

"Political party infighting" might be the most boring phrase in the English language. For many, it's up there on the excitement scale with debates over the best brand of lawn seed or watching darts tournaments on TV.

Ontarians, however, might want to take a closer look at an internal fight within the Ontario Progressive Conservatives; not because of the substance of the dispute, but because of the unseemly tactics used by Conservative party brass to try to stifle it.

At the rally, Brown announced his election campaign platform. It was so underwhelming that National Post columnist Andrew Coyne said it was "of such iridescent vapidity it might have better been titled Nothing To See Here." Click here to read more.

Jessica Smith Cross QP Briefing - November 29, 2017

The Ontario Progressive Conservatives and the Liberals remain statistically tied in Toronto - but Tory support has dropped five percentage points since October, according to a poll by Forum Research.
