Liberal backbenchers, Tory leadership hopefuls among Parliament's biggest dissenters


Members of Parliament might feel pressure to toe the party line and maintain party unity in the House of Commons. But a few MPs have stood out for their willingness to rise and vote "Yea" when the rest of their colleagues vote "Nay."

Still, this breaking of the ranks is rare: even the biggest rebel in Parliament votes along party lines 87 per cent of the time.

    2. The only name that really strikes out is Robert-Falcon Ouellette. He was seriously talked about as a cabinet minister, was one of Justin's few "star candidates" and was thought to be an up-and-comer within the Liberal party. To vote against his own Government 17 times is shocking. It looks as if he has given up on joining cabinet.

      Eric small typo above; I think you mean Gord Johns not God Johns, M.P. for Courtenay-Alberni.
