Liberal MP Pat O'Brien to become Independent

Breaking news from
Liberal MP Pat O'Brien from London-Fanshawe announced Monday morning that he has decided to leave the Liberal caucus and sit as an Independent in the House of Commons. He cited unhappiness with how the Liberals are handling same-sex marriage legislation. The move leaves the Liberals with 133 of the 308 seats in the House of Commons.
It's not on the news website yet; I got the email just now.

I'll post more later.

It'll be interesting to see how Ms. Stronach responds.

Ontario Liberal MP to sit as Independent

Updated (Monday, June 6 - 11:09 am): Actually, I don't care how Belinda responds. I think the Liberals are courting Carolyn Parrish to rejoin - good for her, maybe they can replace Frank McKenna and name her Ambassador to Washington.
