Conservative Party of Ontario?

Stephen Taylor is reporting that Randy Hillier is going to propose changing the name of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario to the Conservative Party of Ontario.

I believe it's just a Randy Hillier trial balloon attempt to rouse the masses as Stephen suggests. Get the word out there and see what happens.

As I said over at Stephen's blog, you generally only change the name of a party if you want to associate or disassociate the party from another party (see the history of the Yukon Party and the discussion around the Alberta Liberals).

Is this the time for the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party to hitch their brand to the federal Conservative Party?

I'd be interested to hear what Christine Elliott, Tim Hudak, and Frank Klees think.

I'm surprised Randy hasn't endorsed Frank yet.
