O’Toole defends decision to turf Batters as senator accuses him of keeping MPs in line with threats

Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole today defended his decision to turf a Saskatchewan senator from caucus for pushing a petition to hold an earlier leadership review, saying Sen. Denise Batters is not a team player.

Speaking to reporters before a Conservative caucus meeting, O’Toole said Batters forced his hand by starting a petition that undermines the Official Opposition’s efforts to hold the government to account.

“It was a necessary decision to make for the well-being of our caucus, our Parliament and our country,” O’Toole said. “We’re united on our way forward as a team. People that are now allowing their frustrations and their own personal agendas or issues on the pandemic to interfere with our progress are not part of that team.
