I don't usually get upset about politics, taking almost everything in stride, nothing surprises me, but just now when I heard about this, it made me furious. I can't believe she did this, someone who once ran for the Conservative leadership. In my Richmond BC riding, a number of years ago, someone switched parties from the then Alliance to the Liberals, Joe Peschilido. He got his butt booted out the next election. I have very little respect for people who change parties while in office, the constituents voted for you and the party you represented, to be able to do that unilaterally without consulting your constituents is an affront to democracy. I don't care who crosses the floor even if it was someone from another party that I don't support, crossing to a party that I support ... boo. We have got to stop that from being so easy! Rant over.
