Pat O'Brien announced June 6th he was leaving the Liberals. The London, Ontario MP said he opposed his party's position on same-sex issues, and would sit as an independent. (O'Brien had contemplated such a move two months earlier. But he was convinced at that time to stay with the Liberals when Prime Minister Martin promised more debate on a same-sex marriage bill. O'Brien described that debate as "farcical.")
