Emerson Says He 'Would' Win as a Tory

Newly converted Tory Cabinet Minister David Emerson says that he is confident he would win another election this time as a Conservative in his BC constituency. Okay. Good. Fine. Let's see. Emerson should resign and ask Mr. Harper to call a byelection. That would be interesting indeed! It would not be the first time. During the late 1990's in Saskatchewan, Buckley Belanger was elected as a Liberal MLA to the Saskatchewan Legislature. During that term, the provincial Liberals imploded and some of their MLA' s went to form a new political party with the scandal ridden Progressive Conservatives. The new party was named the Saskatchewan Party.

Buckley Belanger approached Roy Romanow's New Democrats. Romanow insisted that for Belanger to join the Caucus, he would have to seek re-election as a New Democrat. That is what happened. Belanger resigned his seat as a Liberal in Athabasca Constituency and sought and won the NDP nomination. Romanow called a byelection - Belanger won and is now a Cabinet Minister in the Saskatchewan NDP Governement.

So - Mr. David Emerson - put your money where your mouth is and go for it!
