When Ontario Progressive Conservatives gathered for a "unity rally" last March, the plan was for Doug Ford to be introduced by the candidates he had defeated for his party's leadership days earlier.

It was to be an important gesture of conciliation, after a hurried and heated race that he barely won. But when Christine Elliott and Caroline Mulroney arrived at the Toronto Congress Centre, speaking notes already prepared, they were told that their services weren't needed after all.

Instead, the person to precede Mr. Ford was someone most Tories in attendance had never seen or heard of before - but whose name they would soon know well, and whose presence many of them would soon come to fear.
