It appears that I was wrong when I said that John Tory would drop his Ontario PC leader job like a bad habit after a loss in the provincial vote this fall. Not so though, it appears now that Tory is fighting to keep his job. Overall, while I’m not eager to see Tory become premier, he remains more palatable than, say, Frank Klees or any of the other Harrisites.
One wonders though exactly what Tory will develop in terms of a platform that he can use in the next election. I don’t think he’ll touch education again and the McGuinty-is-a-liar meme never had the traction that the PCs thought it might.
