Garth Turner suspended from Tory caucus
SCOTT DEVEAU
Globe and Mail Update

Outspoken Conservative MP Garth Turner has been suspended from caucus, after a motion passed citing "confidentiality concerns" on his often-controversial daily blog.

MP Rahim Jaffer, chairman of the Tories' national caucus, made the announcement Wednesday that the suspension of Mr. Turner, who represents the Ontario riding of Halton, was the result of a unanimous vote made by both the provincial and the federal Tory caucus.

"This is something that has been culminated since Mr. Turner's election to our caucus," Mr. Jaffer said Wednesday at a press conference in Ottawa. He said the primary sources of concern were confidentiality matters and attacks on other party members posted on Mr. Turner's blog.

Rumour has it that they also sent a junior staffer to his house to kick puppies and push kids around.

Harper likes stalin, is there really any surprise?

I think Elizabeth May would be extremely foolish to make Garth Turner the first Green Party MP.

The man clearly prefers to take direction from his constituents, rather than from any party's policy. The public's perception of the Green identity would become synonymous with the wishes of Garth's constituents.
