Tory, Tory, Tory!

Conservative MP Garth Turner, who I wrote about back in February, has been suspended from the Conservative caucus for blogging about the party.

When I made the first post about him, I thought to myself, “This is why I love Canada. You can be a Conservative, and that doesn’t mean you have to be a partisan asshole”.

Clearly, the Conservative Party disagrees with me.

  1. My big problem with the whole Neo-Con movement is their “Us vs Them” mentality. Many Republicans are unhappy with their party right now because of this…and the same is happening here in Canada. Both the US and Canadian governmental systems are designed to promote a civil discourse on the issues, and attempt to balance power between different branches so that a fast rising ideology can’t highjack the entire government…but the Bush Jr. crowd have managed to get all branches of the US government under one banner, and that is very scary. Luckily, I don’t think that Canadian branch is going to succeed to the same degree…and may be out of office in less than 6 months.

    Me, I want a Liberal Party, a Conservative Party, an NDP and such as that is the nature of Canada, we don’t need some Neo-Con dweebs trying to polarize our country like they have done in the US!

  2. Agreed, the party of Clark is not the same as the party of Harper. Turner would have been a lot more at home Clark’s “conservatives”.

    As it stands, the rumours are that he might become the first Green Party MP :).
