The first time, it was an impulsive choice that I did in response to general discomfort. But I returned to the NDP shortly after, willing to give them another chance, and was made President of my riding association.
Then...the NDP, through a number of incidents, cemented for me the fact that they are no longer a party that I wish to be part of. This, combined with a talk I had with Michael Savage, my Liberal MP at the time, convinced me that the Liberal Party was where I needed to be.
I'll talk about those incidents some other time...
But suffice it to say that I've been a Liberal since January and I'm happy with my decision.
