Toronto Star, Tories challenge Chong's account:
Caucus colleagues say they didn't see it coming. But more important, Prime Minister Stephen Harper didn't see it coming.Plus, the arguments criticizing Michael Chong have already started, if I read this post from Liam correctly:
Chong, in their view, betrayed the Prime Minister by not clearly flagging his intent to resign, and by misrepresenting how Harper dealt with the former minister, whose responsibilities included the unity file.
Michael Chong, obviously having not really listened to or learned anything from many (or any) of his more experienced provincial counterparts or federal cabinet colleagues, decided to bull on with his own rather simplistic view of Canada as a single unitary nation. To be fair, he did the right thing by resigning from cabinet. I'm sure he'll still be an acceptable and effective MP for his riding. He was never a very effective Intergovernmental affairs minister.How long before Michael Chong is declared persona non grata?
Pick your date.
