I was pretty excited when Garth Turner decided to move to the liberal party. I won't call this crossing the floor because he was booted out and then changed his affiliation, he really didn't cross any floor he was in fact on the liberal side of the aisle if you take a look at it. Hypocritical? I know people were going to shout this at him and that's quite fine, I expected it. Look Crossing the floor is party of Politics, let me point out I did not go after Wajid Khan after what he did because that wasn't blatant opportunism, he was enticed by Stephen Harper and appropriately he took the bait and went over to him. However in David Emerson's case what he did was purely disgusting, If he had done it later but not two weeks after an election I might have been a little easier on him but because he did something that was so unbelievably odd and essentially in my opinion, backstabbing that I was really upset when he did it. He acted arrogant and holier-than-thou, so yes I was angry. However, Garth Turner's affiliation switch was interesting. I don't expect Garth Turner to change, he was always his own man and that's how he will operate. However, because of him Switching he absolutely stole the thunder from Harper's Speech, so that was a good thing for him moving his affiliation.
