About 16-hundred members of the Ontario Progressive Conservative party are meeting up in Ottawa, this weekend.
It’s first official PC convention since Patrick Brown took over the party in May. He’ll give the keynote speech on Saturday night.
Brown hoping to change the face of the Party in the hopes of becoming the leadership of Ontario next election.
He’s promising that registration will bring in more youth delegates and more visible minorities to the party.
Brown dismissed a report about a “civil war” in the caucus, between Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren and Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod over a nomination challenge. The two MPPs using a social media selfie to throw off any insinuations there was an issue at the opening ceremonies Friday night.
This weekend has implications for the federal Tory’s, as it represents the first opportunity for the would-be contenders to test the waters with a large group of potential leadership voters.
