Goodbye Garth

I find this somewhat disappointing.

It is unfortunate that we have lost an MP in parliament. However, Garth is playing this like he is the victim rather than the guy who couldn't respect the idea of caucus confidentiality.

I agree with his fellow caucus members to kick him out. How can you have even an informal debate if you think that any comment you make is going to end up on someone's blog.

There are pros and cons to the party-based parliamentary system (and it is not my intention to debate the merits of party-unity) but when you run under the party banner, and you sign on to the ideas of the party and when you lead the people of your riding to believe that you are a conservative, what does that say about your character when you jump ship mid-way.

I am sure that there are many conservatives who will jump at the chance to run under the conservative banner in Halton in the next election.
