Sorry, I have a certain amount of admiration for the guy, but calling a news conference to say you're officially quitting the Tories after they've essentially kicked you out is pathetic. Oh, and the "disturbing news" contained in those three letters he received from party bigwigs? They told Garth that:
1) He's been disqualified as a party candidate in the next election, despite the fact he's a card-carrying member of the party.
2) The decision came in a closed meeting by the party's national council and "no reason was given."
3) The national president of the party says "I will not be permitted to seek the Conservative nomination or a Conservative nomination again."
4) His suspension from Caucus is indefinite and no reason will be given for it -- nor will any evidence will be provided to his electors.
Boo fucking hoo! Garth Turner, I dub thee Media Whore!
