More Floor Crossing Madness in the Great White North

Garth Turner, the firebrand former Canadian Conservative who was kicked out of the party for not playing ball with its rather imperious leader, is now, apparently, a Liberal.

(And yet, somehow, not a single Republican in the Senate has moved to give the Dems that Joe-less 51 seat majority. )

(You'd think 2008 would be looming large.)

In any case, I'm not sure exactly how this affects Canada's rather precarious minority government, but I THINK it means that NDP leader Jack Layton is probably weeping behind a bottle of scotch right now, because for a few glorious weeks he controlled the balance of power and now he doesn't.

(Hat tip: Oliel again, who called it early.)
