There is a lesson in Garth Turner being thrown out of the caucus of the Conservatives. Something you need to consider as a voter come the next federal election in Canada: The fact that no matter what a member of ANY political party promises his individual constituants, he won't be able to deliver anything but what his bosses have planned.
He can say, "I will do this for you. I will do that for you." But we should know that he has absolutely NO say in what he can deliver for your vote.
It seems that Turner is gone simply because he blogs things about his own party and what he thinks they are doing. Honesty and public information seems to be a no no. Has been for a long time.
Chretien controlled everything in the Liberal party from his office, down to what a Liberal answered when someone said hello. The Conservatives are simply more of the same.
Ever felt more powerless?
