Martin Regg Cohn in the Toronto Star charts the future course of the Progressive Conservatives in Ontario following the defeat of former party leader Tim Hudak:
Who will make up the new coalition of voters that returns the Progressive Conservatives to power? What are those voters looking for, and what can the party offer to win them back?
If it remains a party of angry McGuinty haters (he left the building long ago), the Tories will stay stunted through 2018 and beyond. If they cling to the old glory (gory) days of Mike Harris, whose election was a reaction to an unpopular NDP government and an unelectable Liberal alternative in the 1990s, their party will remain frozen in time.
