Would a PC party led by Doug Ford reduce the NDP to non-party status in 2018?

If Doug Ford enters the PC leadership he would win.

He retains huge support in North York, Scarborough and Etobicoke.

A fake poll commissioned by Mississauga mayoral candidate Steve Mahoney showed Doug Ford had support in the 30s in the 905 area.

Plus huge support in rural, Northern and Southern Ontario.

The kicker, the Fords retain 25% support from committed NDP voters. Quarter of NDP committed voters supported the Fords over Olivia Chow.

So with all that NDP support with the traditional PC support, does this bode badly for the NDP in 2018?

Andrea Horwath ran on a lite-Ford agenda. But voters rejected that.

ONDP convention - what is in store?

I thought I would attempt to kick off this topic, since the ONDP convention is only "days" away. Will there be serious challenges to the status quo and the leadership of the party? Will there be meaningfull changes in the way the party conducts itself? And finally, what will be come of the over 300 resolutions proposed by riding associations, regional councils and labour affiliates?
