    They should be back to the 80's logo that looked like a beer label.

    It looks a bit PC to me ;-)

    I'm sure the similarity to the PG Tips logo has been mentioned.

    Experts” (including a guy in the States):

    1. “It suggests a mash-up of each of the three parties, Progressive Conservative, Liberal and Green Party” (even though there are more parties than that in Ontario)
    2. “The geometric construction of the logo is also consistent with current trends in graphic design that are already becoming cliché and outdated”
    3. “Trilliums are white, or at least the way we know them iconically.... It’s either that or a weird pot leaf”
  • For the the benefit of non-Canadians here, PC in Canadian political parlance is Progressive Conservative - Which in Ontario is as much of an oxymoron as it sounds (IMHO).

    Russel, "Progressive-Conservative" reminds me of the old ad for Levis where two horses were racing in opposite directions trying to rip apart a pair of blue jeans ;-)

    They were once pretty much a centrist party. That ended federally here with the merger of the Reform Party and the PCs, They then became just the Conservatives, though for a time they tried out the name, Canadian Reform Alliance Party. Honestly... No idea why that didn't never took root. <|:o)

    Strangely, the Canadian Liberal and NDP parties (centre and left) have the same name federally and provincially, but not the Tories. They should get their act together, at least to demonstrate the modicum of organizational competency that might be expected of those aspiring to government.

    We have four national parties: red (Liberal), orange (NDP), green (Green) and blue (Conservative), so this new logo is clearly way off brand.

    In BC it's a bit stranger than that, because the BC Liberal party is much closer to the Tories federally than to the federal Liberal party. In BC, the Liberal party is the right wing vote.
