The executive of Ontario's Progressive Conservative party meets today to talk about details for their upcoming leadership race.
There's differing opinions in the Tory ranks about whether they should hold a relatively quick leadership convention next January or February or wait a year or longer to give the party time to rebuild.
Sources say there is a group of grass roots Conservatives urging the executive to wait as long as possible so potential candidates have a chance to look for support and test their fundraising abilities.
The lack of consensus may prevent the PC executive from setting a convention date today, but if they do, they'll also have to determine a date for cutting off membership sales and set a spending limit for candidates.
They will also have to decide if the next leader will be chosen by delegates to the convention or if every member of the party will get a chance to vote.
In 2009, when Tim Hudak was chosen leader, every Conservative member was given a vote, but they were weighted so each of the 107 ridings submitted a total of 100 votes to prevent any one area from dominating the balloting.
