More political hypocrisy

 Garth becomes a Liberal.

Turner had been repeatedly criticizing party policy. Those criticisms began exactly a year ago, when Turner publicly blasted former Liberal David Emerson’s defection to Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s first cabinet.

At the time, Turner argued on his weblog that MPs who defect to another party should have to run for re-election under their new party in a byelection.

“If you want to be a Liberal, be elected as a Liberal. All those things have honour but the honour is bestowed by the people, not by the individual.”

Turner will not be resigning his seat to force a byelection in his riding of Halton, located just west of Toronto.
