Political Panel - Tory Turmoil

It's been a tumultuous few months for the Tories on PEI. In December, on the final day of the legislature, Olive Crane resigned as party leader, but stayed on as leader of the Opposition. And then earlier this week, she announced she was stepping down from that position as well. The Tory caucus then chose Hal Perry as the interim Opposition leader. Last night, Steven Myers was voted in as the party's interim Party leader. Confused? With their thoughts on the Tory troubles, we're joined in the studio by publisher Paul MacNeill, Charlottetown lawyer Mary Lynn Kane and Summerside lawyer Nancy Key.
