What about... Alberta sovereignty? Would either one do a better job for Alberta sovereigntists than Hutton does?
Just a question what does BO stand for. Two possibilities come to mind is Barack Obama or Body Odor.
Wildrose Alliance does not have a pro sovereignty position.
Ohhhh pardon me, my error. Do we need more French Bloc Parties in Canada??
The Bloc Ontario was not created to cater to a francophone audience. Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty has complained about the lack of a Bloc Ontario that would defend his province's interests federally. The leader of this party said he would not lead this party into either the next federal general election or his province's general election in 2011. (Since the BO has a federal branch and a provincial branch; the leader goes by the username nickjbor here) Ontarian media seemed to throw the codename "Bloc Ontario" whenever the province was at odds with the Feds.
I'm the chief organizer of this party - at least for the federal branch. But I intend to resign from this position whenever the leadership convention will be called. However, it will be obvious that the provincial branch will have to operate under another name if the next leader is to lead the provincial branch into the 2011 provincial election because of Ontario's ballot access law.
Back to the WA. If the WA actually did take away some of the more... conservative voters off the PC, maybe you'd break a 40-year PC dynasty - which became more and more centrist in the last 15 years.
If the gambit works, the WA may wrest control from the PC and actually beat the Libs to Official Opposition - or even lead the province instead of the PC.
