    Emerson should resign

    Stardate 5313.4

    The third protest in only a week outside David Emerson's Vancouver-Kingsway riding is only the start of the public's apparent outrage at his move to switch sides only weeks after being elected as a Liberal candidate. There is also an online petition with over 20,000 names going around.

    I wrote about this earlier and got feedback ranging from ideas that he should resign or at least pay back the $97,000, to comparisons with Stronach and others, to people attempting to make me look foolish over the use of a word (though in the end, the only foolish person is the fool who doesn't check facts LOL)...

    I am still of the belief that he should resign. One protestor said, "I think he committed a moral fraud in crossing the floor, especially right after the election". I agree completely. He could have waited for some time at least, before betraying the 20,000 people who voted him in as a Liberal candidate.

    If you agree, go sign the Online Petition right now! Of course, greed will most definately stop him from doing the right thing on his own. After all, he would have been a back bencher as a Liberal.

    *** UPDATE ***
    Happy Jack seems to be against the floor crossing fiasco as well. He wants to introduce legislation that would force turncoats to run again...
