"An Interesting Day"

That's how my new best friend Garth Turner described it.

In case you haven't heard, here's how things went down. Last night, Garth, the Conservative MP for Halton, made a blog post called "The stakes," where he talked about the seriousness of climate change and the need for action. The post could be interpreted to be more supportive of Green Party leader Elizabeth May than environment minister Rona Ambrose.

Today, Garth was kicked out of the Conservative caucus. (BTW, they didn't tell him about it. He found out on TV.)

I can't tell you how good it feels to belong to a party where I can today blog in support of Garth without fear of reprisal. The planet and good policy come before party politics, always.

Please consider offering Garth your verbal and, heck, financial support.
