CFN – The Harper government took another hit as former MP Eve Adams walked over to the Liberals giving them the riding of Mississauga-Brampton South, and will be running for the party in 2015.
Mr. Harper is reeling over he loss of one of his key cabinet ministers John Baird.
It highlights two critical issues facing Mr. Harper’s leadership; his numbers with women voters and the glass ceiling that is said to exist for gay candidates with the party.
Mr. Harper is also dealing with with a mass of MPs that will be retiring with the changes to the MP retirement rules that allow them to start collecting at 55 instead of 65.
Ms Adams stated;
I can no longer support mean-spirited leadership that divides people instead of bringing them together
She started her career in municipal politics and has never lost an election.
