HALIFAX - Nova Scotia's Progressive Conservatives have wrapped up their annual general meeting in Halifax.
It's the first time the party has gathered since last June's provincial election, when the NDP won a majority government.
The Tories were reduced to third place status, with nine members elected to the 52-seat legislature.
Conservatives say the party, which plans to hold a leadership convention in October, is ready to rebuild and regain lost momentum.
Jamie Baillie, who's mulling a run at the Tory leadership, says he believes Nova Scotians are already dissatisfied with Premier Darrell Dexter's government.
Party president Rob Batherson says Conservatives have to come together and rally behind whoever is chosen as leader in preparation for the next election.
