Tories may need to take a softer approach to win over voters
Expert weighs in on upcoming leadership battle

A kinder, gentler Progressive Conservative party may rise from the ashes of Tim Hudak's Tories.

That's a quality University of Toronto Political Science Professor Nelson Wiseman says the new leader would have to project.

Wiseman points to a gentler approach both personally and policy-wise. He says the party would then appeal to a broader range of people.

While Wiseman says rebuilding the party successfully is important, he thinks a bigger influence on how the Tories will do in the future is if the Liberals falter while in power.

He says the Tories need to focus on a few things moving forward such as working on policy, finding candidates and fundraising.

A few names have been tossed around as a potential successor to Hudak: Deputy Leader Christine Elliott, Energy Critic Lisa MacLeod, former-MPP Peter Shurman and a few federal conservative MPs.

Hudak will step down as leader on July 2nd. An interim leader will then be chosen.
