Say it ain't so!
The Toronto Star reports that Garth Turner has decided to join the Liberal Party.
Turner is the outspoken Member of Parliament who was kicked out of the Conservative Party after writing too candidly on his personal blog. The Conservative Party claimed he violated party confidentiality, but Turner maintains he was kicked out because his political views were too independent.
It's sad that Turner, who lambasted the party system, which "roll[s] along, sucking up millions of dollars through slick direct mail campaigns, then spending it on polling and marketing and regional organizers with six-figure salaries", would decide to jump into bed with another "giant political machine" after his recent dalliance with the Green Party.
