New Blog to Remove Emerson

He shouldn't have had to renounce his Liberal membership to join cabinte. I think that is short sighted.

If Harper had welcomed him into the Cabinet even remaining as a Liberal it would have been much much more positive.

I would also liked to have seen a BQ member used in the Cabinet in a fashion that wouldn't "Conflict" them.

As for the remove Emerson efforts... Good Luck.

Harper never called for Stronach to resign her post. But I believe he said that it would be more palatable if she had sat as an independant.
