Our MPP, Bill Murdoch, has been suspended by the Progressive Conservative Party. I never intended to write about politics on this blog, but Bill is one of the local heroes in our area. He's been re-elected in every election since he won initially in 1990, but is now unsure of his status within the party after stating that John Tory, the party leader, should get a new job. My understanding is that the public feels Murdoch's comments are more or less justified, as many are unhappy with the major blunders Tory made leading up to the last election. I tend to agree, and I don't see how this can possibly turn out well for the Conservative Party. You can read the full story in the Toronto Star.
