They've been distancing themselves from Toronto city councillor Doug Ford, since news of a video tape appearing to show his brother the mayor smoking crack.
So with news of Ford deciding to take a step back from his provincial aspirations, you would think the Tories would be elated.
But many MPPs were keeping their feelings to themselves as reporters approached them after question period.
Some Tories, like MPP John Yakabuski, remained silent when asked about Ford, showing a tight smile, lips pressed together.
Others, such as MPP Lisa MacLeod underlined she won't comment on people who are not candidates for the Progressive Conservatives.
MPP Vic Fedeli would not say anything about avoiding a potential circus surrounding the Fords, underlining he just wants Ford to do what makes him happy.
Outgoing MPP Frank Klees wishes Ford well at whatever he does, noting the councillor is passionate at what he believes in.
