Canadian member of parliament resigns from NDP over gun registration issue

Interesting story about how the NDP yanked Hyer's speaking time before the House so that he couldn't make a public statement on his decision to resign.

Bruce Hyer has quit the federal New Democrats, electing to sit as an Independent member of Parliament, weeks after being at odds with his party about the end of the long-gun registry.
The decision by one of the party's northern Ontario MPs marks the second time this year the party has suffered a resignation, the first being Lise St-Denis who now sits as a Liberal. . . .
Hyer was one of two New Democrats to vote with the government to end the long-gun registry, a move for which he was disciplined. His departure leaves the NDP with 101 seats.
