I went on vacation, and I missed the entire nomination challenge for Conservative MP Garth Turner's riding of Halton.
I am pleased that Mr. Turner was able to retain the nomination for Halton against a challenge disguised as principled. I think the House of Commons would be a better place with a few more Garth Turners and a few less of the "principled alternatives" that were seeking his removal.
While I may not agree with everything Mr. Turner says, he is a breath of fresh air and ultimately a credit to the Conservative Party.
If you haven't already, I'd suggest you add Garth Turner's blog to your daily read.
Party on, Garth.
