Eastern Ontario Conservative MP Derek Sloan has been booted from the federal Conservative caucus.
Party leader Erin O’Toole had demanded Sloan’s expulsion after word that he’d accepted a campaign donation from a well-known Canadian white supremacist.
A majority of Tory MP’s voted in favour of the decision.
O’Toole says Sloan was expelled, not just for this one incident, but for a pattern of what he calls “destructive behaviour” over the past year.
He says he wants all Canadians to feel welcome in the Conservative party.
