The news broke about an hour ago, John Van Dongen has left the BC Liberals and is sitting as an independent member of the legislature. While he is sitting as an independent member, he has joined the John Cummins and the BC Conservative Party.
Not only has Van Dongen left the Christy Clark Liberals, he threw a couple verbal hand grenades back into her camp. He said that it is becoming increasingly difficult to explain to his constituents the government screw ups like the $6 million BC Rail write-off and the BC Place naming-rights embarrassment.
Interesting times, interesting times.
