PCPO Leadership election will be too soon

The date for the leadership race has been set for June 27th. This is very unfortunate. The party is in shambles with fewer than 5,000 members around the province. We need a longer leadership race to engage the base and to sell memberships. You simply cannot rebuild a party with a rushed leadership race. There is no reason to be in this much of a hurry.

PCPO president Ken Zeise said, “This is an exciting time of renewal for our Party. People are engaged in the process and are looking forward to working with the new Leader to defeat Dalton McGuinty in 2011.” Indeed this is an exciting time and a chance to reverse a steady decline. But if the executive was really interested in engaging people they would allow for more time to become engaged.

Why not just merge the PCPO into the Liebral and Dipper parties - in Ontario they're all the same anyway!
