Meet The Liberal Hit List (Part 2 John Nunziata)

In the buildup to the 1993 federal election, Nunziata criticized Liberal leader Jean Chrétien for appointing Art Eggleton over a local candidate in York Centre. He was forced to apologize for his comments, and was excluded from cabinet when the Liberals won a majority government in the election. He was the only member of the "Rat Pack" who was never included in cabinet.

On April 21, 1996, Nunziata was expelled from the Liberal caucus after he voted against the government's budget in protest over the government breaking a promise to rescind the Goods and Services Tax.

And Sheila Copps promised her sceptical constituents she would quit if Chretien did not kill the GST.

She quit.

All true and it comes back to me, thanks for the flashback. But never a firestorm from the media though? How interesting. (real conservative)

They sent a high profile parachute Liberal Judy Sgro to beat him and it failed. Liberals finally secured Alan Tonks (Former Mayor City of York) beat him John Nunziata the only Independent.

I told a friend last night that I read Blogging Tories everyday. Your blog is one reason why.
