I think the timing is critical to get this off the ground and soon, especially since the creation of the new right-wing party today: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coalition_for_the_Future_of_Quebec

In the Saskatchewan form, someone pointed out that the right often forms new political parties, switches allegiances to another party, or rename/rebrand the existing party - whenever the existing conservative party plunges in the polls.

Examples:

BC Social Credit > (switched allegiances) > BC Liberals

Saskatchewan Progressive Conservatives > (formed new party) > Saskatchewan Party
