Federal Cabinet Minister Resigns

National Post:

A cabinet minister in Stephen Harper's government has reportedly resigned in advance of today's vote on a motion to recognize Quebecers as a nation within Canada.

Michael Chong, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs and MP for the riding of Wellington-Halton Hills, will hold a news conference announcing his resignation this afternoon, according to sources.

I just watched the announcement on Newsworld and it is true, Chong is resigning.

Regardless of the issue or any party's stance on it, and regardless of any political considerations we need more people who will take a stand on principle - in any party.

Mr. Chong obviously felt this strong about the issue and good for him for standing up for what he believes in.

I salute you Mr. Chong - this may be the only time you would get a hard-core dipper like me to say that.
