At least that's what the Liberals are saying about their former caucus-mate Dan Backs, the now-independent MLA for Edmonton-Manning.
Backs was kicked out of the Liberal caucus on Monday by party leader Kevin Taft, who said Backs created "ongoing friction" in the party to the point where everybody in caucus was fed up with him.
"I had to make a decision," said Taft, who refused to give examples of what Backs did wrong.
Taft also acknowledged he never gave Backs a warning before giving him the boot, and Backs says he was astounded by what he sees as an unprovoked ejection.
Proving the Alberta Liberals are no different than their Tory counterparts. They voted him out in secret. Shades of Garth Turner out of the blue they turf Backs. This has got to one of the dumbest political moves yet. No warning. And one of the poorest excuses for turfing someone from your party. Which of course generates all kind of media coverage, for all the wrong reasons.
