Garth Turner, the Conservative MP from Halton (north of Toronto) got the boot from caucus.
It was bound to happen. No one this honest, this transparent can survive in party politics.
I encourage everyone to stay on top of this story and judge for themselves if Mr. Turner is a breath of fresh air or a moron who got what he deserved.
Either way, I wish there were more of him.
You can catch his blog here.
I have said here many times, and consistently since I was elected this last time, that I work for the voters - the people, the taxpayers. After that I heed my party and the political establishment. All are important, of course, but the people come first.
