So there are dippers who will defy their own party and vote to end the useless, costly long gun registry. Good to see! Wonder if rural grits will also vote against their own boondoggle.

An area member of parliament says he'll put the needs of his constituents ahead of his party in 2012.
Bruce Hyer, who represents Thunder Bay-Superior North, was disciplined by the NDP when he voted with the Conservatives to end the long gun registry. Hyer said, despite that action, he's vowing to follow the wishes of people in his riding.
“I'm going to be maintaining my resolve to stand up for northwestern Ontario and put the needs and desires of … my constituents ahead of … party politics,” he said.
