Canadian MP booted for his blog

A Canadian Tory Member of Parliament has been suspended from participating in Conservative caucus meetings for making critical remarks about his party on his blog:

Caucus chair Rahim Jaffer said Wednesday that Turner was ousted in part for critical comments made about the party on the blog that he has maintained on his website since the federal election last January.

"There have been different attacks at different times. We've got quite a significant record of them," Jaffer told reporters, adding that the posts included criticism of the prime minister.


(Thanks, John!)
