When party discipline transcends federal-provincial distinctions


A Progressive Conservative MLA in Prince Edward Island has crossed the floor to the Liberals… because of his disagreement with federal Conservative policy.

As a member of the Liberal caucus, he feels he can now finally speak out against the Harper government’s EI reforms, he said. “Now I have the freedom to speak out for the people of my area.”

Apparently this is the first floor-crossing in PEI history.
