To a larger, bigoted majority?[edit]

"Whitney became leader of the party in 1896 taking it from a narrow, bigoted rump into a forward-looking party determined to build the province... He also appeased the anti-Catholic, anti-French-Canadian sentiments of supporters of the Orange Order in his caucus (such as George Howard Ferguson) by passing Regulation 17... split the country."
Don't suppose that first part could bear rewording? Samaritan 04:44, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

I think the neutrality of this article is questionable, at best. As the above user notes, the wording is terribly partisan and not suitable for an encyclopedia. This article should be looked at by someone who is knowledgeable in this particular area of Ontario politics. -Ty —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:36, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
