Ontario's governing Progressive Conservatives are considering a code of conduct for all their members, part of a quiet trend in Canadian politics that has some party activists worried about unduly restricting the rank and file.

The draft code, a copy of which was obtained by the National Post, contains non-controversial bans on racism, violence and sexual abuse.

But it also includes more nebulous provisions, including rules about undermining the self-worth of others, exercising "care, skill and diligence," and working for organizations at odds with Conservative membership.
