Liberal caucus welcomes Garth Turner into fold
Updated Wed. Feb. 7 2007 12:33 PM ET

Canadian Press

OTTAWA -- Former Conservative MP Garth Turner made his debut at Liberal caucus Wednesday, assuring his new colleagues that he's a team player.


Turner was booted from the Tory caucus last October for repeatedly criticizing Prime Minister Stephen Harper's government and for allegedly disclosing caucus secrets in his popular weblog.


Although they gave him a standing ovation Wednesday when Liberal Leader Stephane Dion introduced the party's newest recruit, some Grit MPs are privately worried that Turner will now turn his critical eye on them.


Turner went out of his way to allay such concerns.


"I know some of you may have heard that I have a blog. Do not fear,'' Turner told Liberal MPs and senators.


"I understand the rules of the game. I understand completely we have to move together as a team. We can't be a hundred people running in a hundred different directions.''


Turner also took a swipe at Harper, saying he's glad to be working under Dion.


"We have a leader in this room who does not lead us through fear and intimidation but who leads us by example and inspiration,'' he said.


Turner had been sitting in the House of Commons as an independent MP since he was turfed by the Tories. His move to the Liberals on Tuesday does not change the balance of power in the minority Parliament.

Perhaps Dion will let Garth speak to his own constituents.


If you ever bothered to read Garth' site, you'd see he was never prevented from speaking to his people. Don't just make things up, mop boy.

As I said in an other thread, Stronger and Stronger. The team is just about ready for the next election. A strong positive Canada is just around the corner.

And Dion will be better? You think Dion will let Garth speak about private caucus meetings on his site?

Dion's already refusing to listen to his advisors and has a very hard time taking criticism from anyone. You think he'll take well to babbling Garth posting information from their private meetings on his blog?

Don't kid yourself.

I think I already expressed my doubts on this thread.

To bad you are blind.


Please, do show me.

I wouldn't be to sure of that, Cretien did the same thing.

He controlled everything from the PMO....where do you think Harper got the idea?


What was that?

I didn't think so.

Buh bye. [hockey]


Point taken :D
