If, as I suspect, Turner's eviction from the CPoC caucus is the religious wingnut faction beginning to flex their muscles and purge from the party any remnants of the old "Progressive Conservative" party, there's an intriguing dynamic that could emerge.
On Garth's blog, I've seen a few comments suggesting that he join the Green Party.
Intriguingly, this could be a viable option for people like Garth Turner who are long time PC's, and find themselves pushed out by hardline, radicalizing ideology. Much of what the Green Party's platform contains reflects pre-Campbell era PC party policy. (After Campbell's disastrous 1992 election, the party changed rather dramatically)
Following up on anonymous commenter who mentioned Dianne Haskett parachuting into a nomination race in London Ontario.
Most interesting, indeed.
