The riding association president of Collingwood has quit, saying:
"There comes a time when people have to forget about the good of the party and refuse to support people who are clearly unworthy of that support," Beaudoin wrote. "I did my best to work from the inside, but the people in charge could care less what I or thousands of us think. "It would be no less than moral cowardice on my part to remain silent in the face of this blatant injustice and total disregard for cherished values of justice, honesty and integrity."He is not the first to express distrust and anger over a dictatorship that not only attempts to rule the country as a one man band, but also the party. You do as you're told or you're gone.
So as Conservatives are turning against this party, why is Jack Layton still musing about propping them up?
If he cites the budget, then he's blowing smoke, because he had no trouble leaving a Childcare Plan and the Kelowna Accord on the table in 2005.
Give your head a shake Jack, or you may find yourself shaking your head, wondering where all your supporters went.
