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.)
